Proverbs 24:14...



I love this photo of sweet, four year old granddaughter's hand holding a peppermint stick.
I also love the book of Proverbs.
If you've never done a study on the contrasts between wisdom and foolishness in the book of Proverbs, I highly recommend doing so.
God wants us to have wisdom.
In the book of James, God tells us to ask Him for wisdom.
This verse in Proverbs tells us that having wisdom is connected to having a bright future, to having hope.
So, wisdom isn't just an optional attribute, it's something we should be asking for, seeking and pursuing.
If we will, God will give wisdom to us.

Still following,

Scripture and Snapshot

  3. The picture is precious. I love shots like that.

    There isn't a day that passes that I don't seek wisdom and patience.

  5. He says that if we lack wisdom, we are to ask. I ask Him every day for wisdom. Have a blessed time at Jumping Tandem. Jealous!

  6. Amen. I crave the listening heart that Solomon asked God to give him. It is the threshold to that wisdom.

    Listen, heart, listen.

  7. Great verse! I try to read a chapter of Proverbs a day when I am praying through a decision or if I am in need of direction.
