Proverbs 2:9-11 – Rewards of Wisdom


 9 Then you will understand what is honest and fair 
       and what is the good and right thing to do. 
 10 Wisdom will come into your mind, 
       and knowledge will be pleasing to you.
 11 Good sense will protect you; 
       understanding will guard you.

Proverbs 2 lists five fruits of wisdom. This second paragraph is about the many precious rewards wisdom provides.

Read about the first fruit, Finding God, here.

Read about the third fruit, Delivered from Evil, here

How do we reap the benefits of understanding God’s plan for us? We take the knowledge from our head and insert it into our heart by living it and allowing it to have dominion over us.

How can we earn these benefits? Study! 2 Tim 2:15 KJV
