TRUTH Day 01: Wisdom

I'm starting a 30-Day TRUTH Challenge today. The purpose of this challenge is to go further into the only actual truth in this world - God's Word. For 30 not-necessarily-consecutive days, I am going to take a piece of Scripture and dig further into it, study it, research, or just write about what God has laid on my heart!

My goal is to learn more about the Lord and the Bible, to develop a deeper understanding of God's Word, and ultimately to allow the Holy Spirit to work in me through this challenge. This was important for me to write about on the blog because I want to start the challenge AND finish it! I get really excited about ideas like this, but when it's a long term goal, sometimes I can forget the mission :) If you have some insight on the Scripture I'm studying or any thoughts, please share!

Have you ever done a challenge of any sort before?
How long was it and did you finish it out?

TRUTH Challenge Day 01

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline. PROVERBS 1:7

What does it mean to fear the Lord?

Biblical fear of the Lord is to honor and respect God, to live in awe of His awesome power, and to obey His Word.

What is wisdom?

In today's world, knowledge is plentiful, yet wisdom is scarce. Wisdom doesn't mean simply knowing a lot; it is a basic attitude that affects every aspect of life.

Who is Solomon calling a fool?

A fool is a know-it-all person with a dogmatic opinion about everything! They are close-minded, resent discipline, and refuse to learn. To avoid being foolish, it is important to learn from others, especially those who I know well and can give me godly insight and counsel. And, remember, only GOD knows it all!

Summary

To gain wisdom, faith in God needs to be the controlling principle for my understanding of the world, my attitudes, and my actions. By trusting in God, He will make me truly wise.

I'm thankful for...

Sunny and deceivingly cold days!
Taking little man out in the jogger!
