You're listening to life path biblical instruction with practical application on Brandon where and I want to welcome you to my podcast today is Thursday, January 21, 2021. In today's devotional thought comes from Proverbs 4 verse one which says here, O sons of father's instruction and be attentive that you may gain insight you know someone has well said that were living in the information age, but we most certainly are not living in the age of wisdom, in other words, information is easily at a person's fingertips these days through Google and smart phones. That's really been this way since we've entered the digital era.
However, real wisdom is rare indeed and I think that's why I love the book of Proverbs so much because Proverbs is all about godly wisdom where to find it. How to get it and how to use it. God calls out to us in the book of Proverbs to the wise words of King Solomon urging us to receive true wisdom and skill so that we can live a life that will bring glory to God. And it all begins with the fear of the Lord. The proper attitude toward his word. Well here in Proverbs 4. Listen as Solomon pleads with our generation, especially in this first verse here, O sons of father's instruction just about every young person at some point has heard these words when I was your age, and in my minds eye I can see them now as their eyes begin to roll, and they think well here comes another lecture what Solomon is telling us here is that this is the primary way that God has ordained for his truth to be preserved and invested from one generation to the next father's are to instruct their sons in the ways of the Lord and that would instruction that he uses their means discipline and correction of its instruction with the intent of providing direction in life, not just knowledge for the sake of knowledge.
But knowledge for the sake of direction in our problem is that we often all want to go our own way there's a way that seems right to a man, but it only leads to death and destruction, and Solomon wants to spare his children of that pain and that's why he says, be attentive so that you may gain insight pay careful attention to this instruction don't stop up your ears to it. Don't despise it.
Don't ignore it instead to hear it carefully.
Listen to it, receive it, so that may give you insight perception you know God's instruction sheds its light on our pathway in life it takes us to Christ leads us all the way home. The psalmist said that the instruction of God's word is a lamp unto our feet in the light unto our path. That means you don't have to navigate the pathway of life in the dark. So listen to God's instruction be be attentive to it in that way you'll gain insight for life.
