Daily Bible Reading for Wednesday, January 24th:



The Fruit of Wisdom

cornucopia

Paul tells us that the scriptures were given to us by inspired writers (literally, God-breathed into them.) It has everything we need to carry out the great commission. (2 Timothy 3:16) With the scriptures we can:

  • Teach others how to find salvation (Teach)
  • Challenge our fellow Christians to improve (Reprove)
  • Show ourselves and others where we see sin (Correct)
  • Make progress toward righteousness (Train)

Solomon knew this too. In Proverbs 2 he lists the five fruits of Wisdom. Through listening and trying to understand (Proverbs 2:2) God’s words, these things begin to happen:

  • We find God (Proverbs 2:1-8)
  • We are rewarded with the love of knowledge (Proverbs 2:9-11)
  • We are delivered from evil (Proverbs 2:12-15)
  • We have safety from harlotry (Proverbs 2:16-19)
  • We will receive a special inheritance (Proverbs 2:20-22)

The next step beyond a daily devotional reading, once it is a well rooted habit, is taking time to really try to understand what God has told us. A momentum begins to build and we become a reflection of his wisdom.
