BIBLE VERSE FOR SATURDAY
Saturday, January 05, 2019
Happy is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gains understanding.
In the Old Testament, what did weavers, artists, tentmakers, carpenters, and ship captains--among others--have in common? They all possessed wisdom. More accurately, they possessed skill. The Hebrew word for wisdom is the word for skill. So, as a craftsman built the tabernacle with skill, Proverbs teaches us to build a life with skill.
What is skill (wisdom) in living? Proverbs 9:10 says it begins with the fear of the Lord. From there, it means living life from God's perspective. Understanding His ways, values, plans, expectation, and methods. Most people spend their life searching for true happiness., the book of Proverbs says that happiness comes from finding wisdom and wisdom begins with the fear of the Lord. God is eternal; knowing Him means eternal happiness. Only God, His Word, and His counsel will stand forever. Life the grass and flowers, everything else will fade away.
What is our source of happiness today? Is it temporary or eternal? Find wisdom and happiness in our relationship with God. The kind of wisdom that God wants to give to those who ask Him is a wisdom that will bind us to Himself.
