Proverbs 24:32 NIV

“I applied my heart to what I observed and learned a lesson from what I saw:”

It’s easy to walk by what the Lord is doing around us and miss out on what He has for us to learn. The specific lesson learned in this verse was about how foolish and what a waste awaited lazy and slothful behavior. Solomon, as wise as he was, still learned by observing the world around him. We can do the same. Observing the behavior or others and the results in their lives from their behavior offers valuable insights not only into the outcomes of actions but also to deeper principles of God’s Kingdom. Jesus would point to things around Him to bring heavenly truth to the eyes and hearts of His followers. Consider the Lilies of the field begins one example. Solomon often does the same. It makes sense that the creator of man would know him so intimately that He could point out the results of our behavior, both good and bad, to teach us His truth. Similarly, the creator of everything in and around us does the same with nature. There is no shortage of places to look and see not only how God designed us to work but how He works as well. We can see who He is in the light of His creation. The writer of Romans makes it clear that it is His intent that we recognize Him in all His creation. Today observe the world around you and learn. #BeTheEdge
