Good morning all,
The word of the day is "parse." It always seems that the Bible has a ton of different meanings. I remember when I first started studying the Bible; I realized how many different ways there were of interpreting the meanings I was learning. I knew that there were a lot of lessons that I needed to understand and apply to my life. But it was up to me to take the correct steps and actions to make that happen. Now that I was a believer, I knew that God expected me to do things a little differently.
“The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom, and whatever you get, get insight.”
My question is what are you doing to gain wisdom and insight? I remember when I was a young Christian going to my pastor’s wife and asking her how she was so knowledgeable in the biblical matters. She told me that she prayed every morning for wisdom and discernment. From that day on, I did the same. My prayer is that you seek wisdom and gain insight from those who have done life a little bit longer than you. Take God’s word and pull it apart, or parse it, to understand a bit more each day. Humble yourself to accept the teachings that others with wisdom might give in order to change your life for the better.
Praying for you,
