Verse of the week
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.
Proverbs 9:10 KJV
The other day I picked up a small give-away calendar with a quote for each month. One of the quotes that caught my attention because I knew it was not true. Even though it is a famous and very old quote.
“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.”Aristotle
Proverbs 9:10 immediately came to mind – The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.
Aristotle was mistaken. His thinking comes from worshiping the creature rather than the creator.
We are called to follow Christ and obey His commands. Not to know ourselves. We are nothing without our God and Savior.
Knowing Him is the beginning of wisdom and life.
Live it out this week
This week think about what sayings, quotes, verses guide your life. Do the sayings and quotes line up with God’s word?
If not, replace the false statements no matter how good they sound with sound statements from the word of God. His words are true and life giving.
Heavenly Father, help me to live by faith in You and Your word. Not by the world’s sayings, misunderstandings, and lies. Show me how to order my life according to Your paths. In Yeshua’s name, Amen.
