The Endless Benefits Of Wisdom
“The Endless Benefits Of Wisdom”
Proverbs 2:1-6 NLT
My child, listen to what I say, and treasure my commands. Tune your ears to wisdom, and concentrate on understanding. Cry out for insight, and ask for understanding. Search for them as you would for silver; seek them like hidden treasures. Then you will understand what it means to fear the Lord, and you will gain knowledge of God. For the Lord grants wisdom! From his mouth come knowledge and understanding.
We sure like a lot of things in life that promise or advertise some time of benefits. We like to have a job that provides many benefits to us and our families. We like subscribing to different memberships of services that promise to provide many great benefits. How about when we go out to eat and pay a fee to have “all you can eat” buffets? We sure like those and get our fill, don’t we? There are so many things and situations in life that offer some kind of benefits and it makes us feel good to know we are covered and taken care of one way or another.
While you and I both enjoy the many different ways we can get benefits in this world through various places, services and memberships, I cannot help but to think how little it compares to the amazing benefits we receive from God’s infinite wisdom. As much as I focus on getting great deals and bargains for the money I pay for different things, I need to be reminded often that the valuable wisdom that God offers far surpasses anything in the world could ever provide.
One food place that is in the Twin Cities that I really enjoy going to is Red Robin. They have endless/bottomless steak fries with any burger entrée. When we go there, you can just imagine how many fries I eat! My wife will tell you that I get like 3 helpings of fries! Not only are they good, but they just keep bringing more and more of them because that’s the benefit of going there to eat. I know that by going there, I will always get that deal.
The same is true with the wonderful benefits of wisdom of God! We know that anytime we come to Him and dive into His Word, He will impart endless wisdom to us if we ask Him. How amazing is that? He never stops pouring out the riches of His endless pearls and nuggets of great wisdom!
My hope and prayer for all of us is that we will be reminded every day of the riches and richness of God’s amazing and endless wisdom. It’s greater than anything the world can possibly offer us. While there are definitely many different ways to enjoy benefits with different things in the world, absolutely nothing could and can every compare with the bountiful wisdom from our wonderful and amazing God Who created us!
Oh, the endless benefits of the wisdom of God!
