My son, obey your father’s commands,
and don’t neglect your mother’s instruction.
Keep their words always in your heart.
Tie them around your neck.
When you walk, their counsel will lead you.
When you sleep, they will protect you.
When you wake up, they will advise you.
For their command is a lamp and their instruction a light;
their corrective discipline is the way to life.
Proverbs 6:20-23 NLT
Someone can have a lot of knowledge and use none of it appropriately. Isn’t it clear that is foolishness not wisdom?
Isn’t it clear that an abundance of knowledge with no practical application, with no obedience, with no belief just leads to puffery, hypocrisy and pride?
So acquiring knowledge alone is not the way to wisdom.
Acquiring a knowledge of Jesus and His teaching alone is not the way to life. It isn’t knowing ABOUT Jesus that buys you a ticket to your fire insurance for after you are dead.
No, getting to know Him, believing Him, turning away from sin and worldliness, following Him, obeying – this is the faith that saves.
Have you surrendered your today, even this very moment to renew your walk close and personal with Christ? Will you walk wisely or foolishly?
Choose today who it is you will truly serve, who it is you truly love, who it is you truly believe — and let your light shine bright, believer!
