We all want to learn and grow to know God’s word but are we willing to take the time to discipline ourselves to read it everyday? That is what makes the difference in our walk with the Lord. When we meditate on it and have that relationship with God daily we can gain understanding for right living. When we do that we can share our faith with passion and openness so people see actively the change in our lives.
In verse 14 it says, “Wise words bring many benefits and hard work brings rewards.”
I love that because the more wisdom we seek from God the more we will receive and when we share with people what we share is wisdom from God. To forget our busy days and give to God our best takes hard work and discipline and both will pay off in the end. We should not want anything else in our life than to work hard and do everything we can to learn what God wants us to know. We have so much to gain when we ask, seek, and knock. Knowing Jesus is not enough, we should want to be just like Him in all we do. Warren Wiersbe author of the “Expository Outlines on the New Testament states, “It is easy to be in the crowd but not so easy to carry the cross. After we “come in” and find salvation, we must “come to “Him for our cross, and then “come after” Him in obedience to His will.” He was sharing about Luke 14:25-26 (you need to read). Hard work and discipline are so important as we learn and grow to feel God’s love in our hearts. Open and grow everyday. Amen
