Today's reading: Proverbs 2:1-22
As I finished up reading Proverbs 2:1-22, my thoughts were on the benefits of receiving godly wisdom. But when I went back and read the chapter again, these phrases are what God impressed on my heart:
- "making your ear attentive" (vs. 2)
- "inclining your heart to understanding" (vs. 2)
- "call out for insight" (vs. 3)
- "raise your voice for understanding" (vs. 3)
- "seek it like silver" (vs. 4)
- "search for it as for hidden treasure" (vs. 4)
As I thought about my focus, one of the things I asked myself was, "Am I intentional about seeking godly wisdom?" For the most part, I think I am, but not always. Why? Well, my life (and I'm guessing yours too) is crammed full, and when I continue to pack things into my schedule (and I certainly do) that's when my intentionality about seeking God and His wisdom can fall by the wayside. So Proverbs 2 was a good reminder for me today about prioritizing and keeping my focus in the right place.
