“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.” (Proverbs 1:7)

What is knowledge? Is it just the accumulation of facts or something deeper? In my view it needs to be applicable to have any value. The fear of God is described as the beginning of knowledge, the foundation of understanding. This is not just some etherial understanding of God but a practical knowledge that is applicable in the real world, in our everyday existence at work.

If wisdom is to develop we need to know that God is God and that his word is revelation. If you want knowledge go to God and read his word and ask his Spirit to reveal its treasures to you. Do this and you will have knowledge, instruction and wisdom.

Quick Prayer. “Help me to respect your word, for Your sake.” Amen
