Daily devotional: Wisdom and understanding

Scripture

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
Proverbs 9:10 NIV

Observation
Solomon implores us to seek and value wisdom above all else. With wisdom and understanding comes long life, wealth, and satisfaction. Fearing the Lord gets it started, and pouring ourselves into knowing Him through the Word and experience is understanding. It is awesome that God doesn't make wisdom hard to find. All who seek it will find it (Proverbs 8:17), and wisdom is calling out to us (Proverbs 1:20-21).

Application
Grow in wisdom by continuing to fear the Lord and know Him better!

Prayer
Lord, I love you! Thank you for making wisdom accessible to us. Thank you for showing Yourself to those of us who seek after You, too! I yearn to know You and know Your ways. Please grow me and build me into the man You want me to be! Thank you, my Lord and Savior!
