Topic: The Important Things
Scripture: proverbs 2: 1-5
What is important to you? This proverb tells us what is necessary if finding knowledge of God is what we are searching for. When this is compared to the search for silver or hidden treasures, we see how diligently the search should be. What we need to do first is to listen to God’s word and to keep the commandments. If we look for wisdom with an understanding heart, we are on our way to finding God.
But it seems as if not all roads will lead to this knowledge because we need discernment, we need to judge whether we are following the right path and with this comes understanding If we look carefully at this passage what we find is basically the Gifts of the Holy Spirit.
The only things missing are fortitude or courage, and reverence or piety. We know today that these gifts are there for us if we choose to ask the Spirit for them. They are there for us from the moment of our baptism. These gifts are there for more than just the knowledge of God, they are there to help us throughout our lives.
When we need strength to do the right thing, when we want to know what is the right thing to do, we can ask the Spirit for help. We need to remember that the Spirit is there willing and able to help us if only we ask.
Prayer For Today
Lord, there are so many ways that you let us know that we are not alone. Help us to remember to call on you in good times and in bad, to give you thanks and praise, and to ask for your guidance in the decisions we make. Amen.
