Treasure Hunt

Wisdom doesn't just happen. It requires ongoing action on our part. That was the primary message I took away from Proverbs 2:1-5. Here's why I say this. Did you notice all the action verbs?

• If you receive my words (vs. 1)
• Treasure up my commandments (vs. 1)
• Making your ear attentive (vs. 2)
• Inclining your heart to understand (vs. 2)
• Call out for insight (vs. 3)
• Raise your voice (vs. 3)
• eek it like silver (vs. 4)
• Search for it (vs. 4)

So what's your practice when it comes to gaining wisdom? What does seeking wisdom look like for your life? Tami W.
