Proverbs 9:10 NIV

By October 9, 2022No Comments

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” 

This right here. I don’t know how much you are into scripture memory but if you are looking for one to file away, you can’t go wrong with this one. Benson says, “The very first, and, indeed, the principal thing which is to be instilled into all men’s minds, (without which they will make no progress in true wisdom,) is a serious sense of the Divine Majesty, and an awful regard toward him.” No knowledge is truly wisdom unless it comes from and is focused on the one true, living God. Solomon with all his wisdom, knowledge and understanding, and he certainly had a lot, knows the source and focus must be God. As a Poly Sci major I use to listen to and read a lot of the great political and social thinkers. Many were very smart, even interesting. Some made great contributions to society. However none of them offered the keys to eternal life and true joy apart from the realization of who God is. All the worldly knowledge apart from a proper understanding of who God is is worthless. However, when that knowledge is run through the filter of Him what The Edge refers to as the Biblical Worldview emerges. It is invaluable. Today start with a healthy respect for God and an intimate walk with Him and watch your life come together. #BeTheEdge
