Grow in Wisdom

Verse of the Day: Proverbs 1:5         

The wise hear them and grow in wisdom; those with understanding gain guidance.       

Solomon, the king of Israel, asked God to give him wisdom and understanding and it pleased the Lord, so he gave him wisdom and understanding beyond measure. The Book of Proverbs was written to guide people, not just the young, but all people in what is right, just and fair. Some say the Book of Proverbs doesn’t apply to today’s times, but it is as relevant now as it was then because God’s Word is the same yesterday, today and forever. Learning is a life-long journey, even the wise can still grow in knowledge and wisdom.

Lord, thank you for your holy Word that gives me wisdom, understanding and guidance daily. Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in Your Word. Open my ears so that I may tune in to Your instruction in righteousness. Open my mind to receive wisdom that comes from heaven above and helps me to grow closer to You. Open my heart so that Your Word may dwell in me all the days of my life. Amen.
