“Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold.”
In yesterday’s verse (Proverbs 4:7-8), we learned that wisdom begins with getting wisdom; finding begins with seeking. To experience it, wisdom must be both desired and honored.
M46 Challenge: Talk to your children about the value of God’s wisdom. Why is it more valuable than money or gold?
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for the benefit of your wisdom and understanding. Help me to teach my daughter the benefits of finding and adhering to your wisdom. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Thoughts: Inasmuch as there is wisdom in stewardship, how may we be better stewards of the wisdom He grants us? Where does wisdom rank among our most valued blessings – and of which are we more impassioned stewards? Ponder James 3:17.
As we approach Thanksgiving, we will spend a bit of time on Proverbs 4:18 and how God’s light may shine through our children.
