Hello, today my sister and I are doing a post together on Proverbs 9:10-11 which says:
“10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,
and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
11 For through wisdom[b] your days will be many,
and years will be added to your life.”
As we have talked about before, the beginning of wisdom is the fear of the Lord. And to continue growing in your wisdom you trust in Jesus, who saved you from your sin on a cross! Then the Holy Spirit will give you wisdom, and you will have the key to unlock all passages of the Bible: the Gospel!
Verse 11 tells us that through Wisdom “our days will be many” and “years will be added to your life”. If you are wise you will most likely have the knowledge to live in a healthy lifestyle, and that can “lengthen our days”, although our days are already numbered by God. But through Jesus, wisdom, our spiritual life will be lengthened to eternity! When we trust in Jesus our spiritual lives are saved, and we will go to heaven to be with Jesus for eternity.
In order to have understanding, we need knowledge of the Holy One, that is Jesus. Jesus gives us understanding, and life. He helps us to know what is right. It is not WWJD because Jesus lives in us. Jesus gives us wisdom, and understanding. In order to truly live, we need Jesus to live in our hearts.
Grace and truth, Charity Cleveland and,
