Posted on June 04, 2019

Life is a series of big and small decisions—in relationships, at work, and everywhere else. Sometimes we make great decisions, and sometimes we make really poor ones. Just as Solomon pleads with his son to accept his words and store up his commands, God urges his kids to do the same. Listen to His wisdom, and he promises to grant you knowledge and understanding.

Proverbs 2

The Benefits of Wisdom

1 My child, listen to what I say,

and treasure my commands.

Tune your ears to wisdom,

and concentrate on understanding.

3 Cry out for insight,

and ask for understanding.

4 Search for them as you would for silver;

seek them like hidden treasures.

5 Then you will understand what it means to fear the LORD,

and you will gain knowledge of God.

6 For the LORD grants wisdom!

From his mouth come knowledge and understanding.

7 He grants a treasure of common sense to the honest.

He is a shield to those who walk with integrity.

8 He guards the paths of the just

and protects those who are faithful to him.

9 Then you will understand what is right, just, and fair,

and you will find the right way to go.

10 For wisdom will enter your heart,

and knowledge will fill you with joy.

11 Wise choices will watch over you.

Understanding will keep you safe.

12 Wisdom will save you from evil people,

from those whose words are twisted.

13 These men turn from the right way

to walk down dark paths.

14 They take pleasure in doing wrong,

and they enjoy the twisted ways of evil.

15 Their actions are crooked,

and their ways are wrong.

16 Wisdom will save you from the immoral woman,

from the seductive words of the promiscuous woman.

17 She has abandoned her husband

and ignores the covenant she made before God.

18 Entering her house leads to death;

it is the road to the grave.

19 The man who visits her is doomed.

He will never reach the paths of life.

20 Follow the steps of good men instead,

and stay on the paths of the righteous.

21 For only the godly will live in the land,

and those with integrity will remain in it.

22 But the wicked will be removed from the land,

and the treacherous will be uprooted.
