Don’t Jump Without A Chute

January 17, 2020


DAILY PROVERBS:

Proverbs 2:1, 2 & 5 My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee; So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding;… Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.


OUTLOOK ON THE IN BOOK:

      In our study during the past couple of weeks, we have seen in verse seven of chapter one “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of Knowledge.” This is the key verse to this book. Ok, you might ask then, just how do I find or obtain this fear of the Lord? That would be a valid question since God said this is what you need to get knowledge. 

     It would also be somewhat cruel, if God told us what it was that we needed to do, but then gave us no instruction on how to do it. It might be likened unto me telling you that Skydiving is fun, however, forgetting to explain about the parachute. After you jumped from the plane, you’d have a right to think that I wasn’t telling the truth about how much fun this was. The closer you came to the ground, the less you’d find skydiving to be fun. 

     Our life is much the same. The closer to the end of life we come, the more we realize just how much we really need all the details we can possibly get to completely enjoy it. God says in Proverbs Chapter two, exactly how to find the fear of the Lord.  

  • First He says LISTEN! “Receive the word,” and “incline thine ear,” both refer to learning. Listen to what God says. Learn as much as you can about who He is, and what He desires.  
  • Second He says REMEMBER! Don’t just read the word, but hide it in your memory. You’ll need this information later.
  • Thirdly He says ACT UPON IT! Don’t just sit there with a head full of knowledge, do something with it. If you do, you’ll understand who God is, what He knows, and how He wants you to live your life.  no!


THE WORD WALKING IN ME:

     Knowing about a parachute and jumping without it would make no sense. In fact, you would have to agree, that would be dumb. Knowing about God, and not using His wisdom to help in life, well I think you get the picture. Let’s be as wise as God allows us to be.
