Week 22 Thursday

Where It All Begins

Today’s scripture selection: Proverbs 1

Key verse: Proverbs 1:7

     Every now and then I feel the need to get “back to basics.”  What do I mean by that?

     I mean – it’s helpful sometimes to sit down in a quiet place, reflect on where you are and where you want to be, and think about how to get there.  And that doesn’t always mean just starting another “To-Do” list.  For me, it’s about re-visiting my most basic beliefs and values.

     And that often leads me to one place – Proverbs, chapter 1, verse 7:

     “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.”

     That one, pithy verse says a lot to me:

  • That God is ultimately the answer to all my deepest questions
  • That I can always learn something new – especially about those deepest questions
  • That the biggest fool in the world is the one who refuses to learn
  • And that the one who first penned those words, Solomon, is credited with being the wisest of all men.

Not a bad place to begin when getting “back to basics.”

So invite you to do the same.  Think about where you are, where you want to be, and what – if anything – is confusing or disturbing about that process.

Then ask God for a little guidance.

It’s where it all begins – and ends.

 

Prayer: Lord, open my mind – and heart – to you.  AMEN.
