Proverbs 22:17-29 Incline your ear, and hear the words of the wise, and apply your heart to my knowledge...
In my Bible the heading for Proverbs 22:17-29 says "Words of the Wise" and that's certainly the case throughout these verses. But there were two phrases that sent an especially strong message to me today. The first is in verse 17 where we're told to apply our hearts to knowledge, and then verse 18 which lets us know we need to be ready to speak wise words with our lips.
So how are you "applying" your heart to godly knowledge? And as far as your lips go, are you making the most of your opportunities to speak wisely--and how? Tami W.
