31 Days of Proverbs: Day 2

Day 2, Chapter 2:    

What have we learned from 2014? I don’t think I’ve actually sat down and thought about all the lessons and wisdom gained from last year. So many of us talk about it quickly or have fleeting thoughts about the previous year but have we soaked in the wisdom gained from 2014? In chapter 2 Solomon writes to us about the benefits of wisdom and urges us to seek it. When someone of respect urges you to do something, it’s highly in your favor to consider it and more times -do it. Verse 2 “Tune your ears to wisdom, and concentrate on understanding.” What does that mean? It means to train your ears to recognize wisdom, to enjoy hearing wisdom, and delight in it. When you tune into the radio or tune your ears to music, what are you doing? You are searching and seeking for the sound. “…concentrate on understanding”, is what we can reflect on from 2014. Once we have journaled or had quiet time within our thoughts of the previous year, we should see hope of the future from understanding of the past. Verse 11 is my favorite, “Wise choices will watch over you. Understanding will keep you safe.” Do not be afraid, worry, or commit yourself to too many resolutions. Wise choices will watch over you and understanding will keep you safe. Dear Lord, thank you for the gift of wisdom and understanding. We are learning how to gain, treasure, and seek wisdom from you. Help us reflect on our past only to have understanding and peace so that our future is guided by wise choices. In Jesus name, Amen. “He guards the paths of the just and protects those who are faithful to Him.” Proverbs 2:8 NLT
