The purpose and theme of Proverbs is “for gaining wisdom and understanding; for understanding words of insight”. (Proverbs 1:2, NIV)

We all know how to live peaceful, prosperous, genuine, and fulfilling lives. We’ve read the books, gone to the seminars, and listened to most of the “experts” on the subject. We have all the information we need. We just don’t always know how to apply it. That’s why God had Solomon develop the book of Proverbs. Proverbs has a very unique perspective on wisdom and understanding. There is only one kind of wisdom in the world – God’s! Everything except God’s wisdom is foolishness. Everything! From the boardroom to the bedroom, it’s only God’s wisdom that counts. The best part about God’s wisdom is that it is easily accessible, simple to understand, and imminently practical. It is also progressive. God says that He will give you wisdom as you obey what you already know. Obedience is the key that unlocks the door to knowing God’s will for you. When you obey on the smallest detail, you will discover that you know what to do next. If you refuse to obey on the smallest detail, all the rest will seem futile.

Start this Tuesday by being obedient to God’s will. Seek His wisdom throughout the day. Enjoy the rest of your week, “Working for Christ”!
