Proverbs 2:10-12 When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul; Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee: To deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward things;
Picture yourself walking into a room, and in the room were two plates of food. One plate is marked “healthy, nutritious.” However, it didn’t look so good. It wasn’t gross or smelly, but it didn’t look as good as the other plate. The other plate is marked “Poison.” Nevertheless, it was colorful and looked so good. You’re only allowed to have one plate, which will it be?
Being smart enough to take the healthy plate, two things have happened. You not only get the vitamins and minerals you need for your body to grow and be healthy, you also avoid something that would have literally killed you.
Wisdom and the world are much the same as these plates of food. As long as you are sitting back and looking at them, neither will do anything to you, or for you. However, eventually you’ll have to eat. Once wisdom enters your heart, and gets inside of you, you learn about the evils of this world. Once the respect for who God is seeps deep into your heart, you understand how sin hurts God, and you. Your desire for more food to strengthen you grows. It doesn’t look so plain anymore. You’ve come to love it because of the strength it gives you. The more you get, the stronger you get. Your decisions are now based on fact and wisdom, not dreams and lies. You start to see things as they are, and have no desire to be around people who live in sin and try to twist the truth. Why? It’s because knowledge is now pleasant and welcome in your soul. You love it.
The world will poison you against God. God will feed you, and send you out into that world. Why would He do that? Because, He loves the world you once came out of too. Be careful in that world. You need your daily Holy vitamins to make it out there. Did you get yours today?
