Welcome and Shalom Friend!
Today’s Scripture Focus is from the book of Psalms: 111:10
“Respect and obey the Lord! This is the first step to wisdom and good sense. God will always be respected.”
There are some people who are quite scholarly — they read all of the most prestigious journals and books — they can often thoroughly bewilder you with theories and words.
However, for all their knowledge, they don’t always act in a wise manner.
It is then that I wonder if they’ve ever read anything from the book of Psalms — where there is great wisdom.
This particular psalm above declares we are to respect and obey God.
After all, He really does know everything and never steers you wrong.
The basis of wisdom is to realize you don’t know it all, but you do know the One who does.
So to be wise, follow Him. In the end, all the other sources of knowledge will pass away, but He will remain.
Praise God that this is so!
Let’s bow our heads together and pray:
God, I don’t know it all, but I’m thankful that You do. Please help me respect and obey You so I can have true wisdom.
