Wisdom and Understanding in the Proverbs

Posted by admin on 12 July 2020 in Proverbs |

Proverbs 2:1-5

1 My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you,

turning your ear to wisdom

and applying your heart to understanding—

indeed, if you call out for insight

and cry aloud for understanding,

and if you look for it as for silver

and search for it as for hidden treasure,

then you will understand the fear of the Lord

and find the knowledge of God.

Verse 1 can begin by ‘reading’ the book of Proverbs. This book is easy to read even when you are new to the Bible. Especially, when you read chapter 10 ~ 31, you will notice that each verse shines inside your heart like the light. This book consists of 31 chapters. So, it is good to read one chapter a day. So, the whole book can be read once a month. What the book promises may be fulfilled if you read it regularly (v1) because you seek wisdom and understanding as described in v2-4. Then the result will be as shown in v5 and Proverbs 2:6-22.
