Philosophaster (Proverbs 18:1-15)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “philosophaster.”

Most of us think we are pretty smart when were little kids.  But, somewhere down the line we realize that we don’t know very much… a philosophaster of sorts.  The sooner you learn this, the better chance we have of actually learning something that is worthwhile.  I have found over the years that if I invest my time into mentors, those people who can help me be a better person, I have a better chance of setting myself up for success.  I have bypassed a lot of frustrations over the years by listening to my mentors and having them give me advice when I didn’t necessarily wanted, but I really truly needed it.

"The heart of the discerning acquires knowledge, for the ears of the wise seek it out.” ~Pr 18:15

My question is: where are you on your appreciation for acquiring knowledge?  What does that even mean to you?  I was always told that I was only as good as the people that I hang out with, and the books that I read.  I try to do both with the best possible.  My prayer is that you look towards others that have something to teach you.  If we associate ourselves with knowledgeable people, and read the things that we are supposed to, we can continue to become better people.  Not just because we have knowledge, but the way that we applied allows us to serve God a little bit more intentionally.  Go out today and seek some wisdom.

Praying for you,
