Godly Knowledge, Wisdom and Understanding
May 20, 2016 Year C
God used knowledge, wisdom and understanding to create the heavens and the earth (Proverbs 3:19, Genesis 1:1-2). God used His brain (if God were to have a brain) to create. His knowledge was used to make the rains occur (Proverbs 3:20).
God used wisdom, knowledge, and understanding to create the universe and everything in it. In the same way, God expects us to use our knowledge, wisdom, and understanding in life.
Our knowledge, wisdom, and understanding come through life experiences. Our life experiences teach us competence and we learn the wisdom of discretion (Proverbs 3:21). Here in Proverbs, the Bible lists the results of following that Godly knowledge, wisdom, and understanding.
FIVE RESULTS OF FOLLOWING GODLY KNOWLEDGE, WISDOM, AND UNDERSTANDING
- Life (Proverbs 3:22)
- Health (Proverbs 3:23)
- Safety (Proverbs 3:23-24)
- Protection (Proverbs 3:25)
- Confidence (Proverbs 3:26)
The same knowledge, wisdom, and understanding that God used to create the world, He can use to help me live life well.
Prayer: God, please teach me using Your knowledge, wisdom, and understanding.
