Genesis 30:1-31:21 / Matthew 10:1-26 / Psalm 12:1-8 / Proverbs 3:13-15

Standout verse:

Proverbs 3:13

“Happy is the man who finds wisdom and the man who gains understanding.  For her proceeds are better than the profits of silver and her gain more than fine gold.  She is more precious than rubies, and all the things you may desire cannot compare with her.”

Wow. Wisdom (i.e. knowledge and understanding of “who God is” and “how” He wants us to live) is a big deal to God.  In fact, the Bible says ”nothing compares to her” (wisdom).  True, Godly, wisdom (which stands in direction to the empty, finite wisdom the world offers) can only be found when we have a growing relationship with the Lord.  It’s through that relationship that He is able to pour out His wisdom upon us so we will be strong and well-equipped to walk out our life.  He deeply desires to “show us great and marvelous things we don’t know on our own” (Jeremiah 33:3).  Knowing that makes me happy!
