One Word From Proverbs 2: “IF…”

31 Days. 31 Chapters. 31 Days of a Proverb.

Have you read the book of Proverbs in the Bible? If you haven’t, you’re missing out.

If you missed Proverbs one, here it is for you.

Below is a thought from Proverbs 2:1-2

“My son, if you receive my words and treasure up my commandments with you, making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understanding…”

As Solomon spoke to his son, he certainly wanted him to hear. He wanted him to consider his words. There’s one word I want us to consider. That word is “IF…”

Solomon had plenty of wisdom to impart to his son. But his son had to listen. The same is true with respect to God. God has provided us wisdom through His word. But we have to listen. Wisdom is knowledge that is applied. Many have knowledge, but many don’t apply. Let’s LEARN and LIVE not LIVE and LEARN.



I CAN DO and SO CAN YOU. Life is all about having the right kind of attitude. We will face challenges. We have to decide how we will respond. Getting an ICD (Internal Cardio-Verter Defibrillator) in 2010 forced me to make a decision about my mindset. I decided that I CAN DO. What about you? Let's go.
