DAY 18 - Furniture in a Field | "House of Wisdom" Devotional

Sunday, February 18, 2018 Bryan Hudson 0 Comments

Proverbs 24:3, By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established; 4 through knowledge its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures.

It has often been said that “Knowledge is Power.” According to Proverbs, knowledge can fill “rooms” with many wonderful things, which may be desirable. But knowledge alone is not enough.
Can you imagine a room full of things without a house? How useful would it be to arrange furniture on an empty lot? Knowledge without wisdom and understanding looks like furniture in a field, without a structure or purpose.

Wisdom is the ability to know what to do and where and when to take action. Understanding is knowing the meaning of things.  Knowing the "what, where and why" of life must come before simply acquiring material possessions. 

Therefore, power is really found in possessing wisdom and understanding!

As always, the Word of God teaches us the best way to live!
