Quote of the Day: “He who corrects a scoffer gets shame for himself, and he who rebukes a wicked man only harms himself. Do not correct a scoffer, lest he hate you; rebuke a wise man, and he will love you. Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser; teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. For by me your days will be multiplied, and years of life will be added to you.” (Proverbs 9:7-11, NKJV)
As we begin a new year there are many options available to each of us. We can be the scoffer, who cares nothing for God and mocks those who consider God’s Word important. We can be a wicked person, whose only desire is for himself and who seeks to destroy anyone who stands in his way. Or we can be the wise and just person who heeds the will of God, learns from mistakes and seeks to do better in the future.
As we begin the new year, which will you be? There is only one place to start if you seek wisdom, knowledge, and understanding – that is with a reverence for God and his word. God’s Word is the only source of lasting wisdom. Will we seek it?
