Get Wisdom and Understanding

Photo by Elizabeth

Life rolls along, and we sometimes forget how important are our daily decisions. They often are seeds shown which produce a harvest that takes on much greater significance than we dared to believe. It is to our advantage to choose according to God's wisdom.

Proverbs 4:7 reminds us that wisdom is the principal thing. Then the verse says something interesting - in all your getting, get understanding.

I often feel like, not only do I have to ask God for wisdom, I have to ask Him for understanding.

SO much truth to these words! We should give thought to each and every decision we make in life! So many times I look back at things I have done and asked myself "what were you thinking?!".

I agree with that totally. "Our lives are not made by the dreams we dream, but by the choices we make." I saw that in a card one time, and it's never left me. So many choices can be the wrong ones - if only we would stop just a split second and say, is this really what I want or should do?

Thank you for that wonderful reminder. At this season of life, the days are so busy. You're right though, we definitely reap what we sow in those daily decisions. We need to ask and seek after God's wisdom and understanding. Thank you so much.
In His love,
