Come join me in a study on Wisdom!

As we drove home from a Dr. appointment awhile back, I saw an interesting sign posted on a Church bulletin board. It said: Dusty Bibles lead to Dirty Lives, and I remembered that Psalms 119: 104 & 105 says: “I gain understanding from your Words, therefore I hate every wrong path. Your Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.”

It seemed to bring home to me that if God’s Word is “Light” and we don’t use it to light our life’s pathway, then we will end up falling and getting dirty and/or hurt, but if we do use it, we will have a lighted way before us and be able to go around most of the pitfalls that we come upon. One thing that I noticed though, is that a candle or lamp doesn’t light very far in front of you… just enough for a few safe steps at a time. I think I even remember a book about something like that by Stormie O’Martian called, “Just Enough Light for the Step I’m on.”

I also read about this very thing, awhile back, in the blog: A Corgi in Southern California… Do you think maybe God is trying to be sure He gets my attention on this thing? I already read my Bible daily, and have for many years, because my Mom had been an excellent example of someone who does that.

As some of you may know, I recently spent several weeks in Florida as my Daughter In Law just passed away, and I spent a great deal of that time praying for wisdom to light my way: Wisdom in what to say to my son, and to my four grand-daughters, wisdom in when to listen and when to talk, even wisdom in what to pray for. I thank God that I had built a foundation of Biblical wisdom from the years that I have spent reading His word, and I found that it was very important during this time of crisis in lives of my family.

Many crisis are coming faster and faster in people’s lives today with the problems this country is facing, and I feel that others need to start building, if they haven’t already, a solid foundation on the Word of God, for He is the only source of TRUE wisdom there is.

I have prayed about this and feel that I should try to do a Bible Study blog on Biblical Wisdom, so that is what this blog will be about. I will do a few introductory blogs on the subject and then try to go through the Book of Proverbs in the Bible, as that is where a large concentration of Biblical wisdom can be found. I hope that you will join me and make plenty of comments, so that we can share in learning more from God together.

Keep the light on in your life, so that you will walk in safe paths, and have a great day!
