DAILY DEVO...are you thirsty?

I've learned another great Truth today as I continue to study the book of Proverbs...THIRST for knowledge!

"Above all and before all, do this: Get wisdom! Write this at the top of your list: Get understanding! Throw your arms around her-believe me, you won't regret it; never let her go-she'll make your life glorious." -Proverbs 4:7 (MSG)

King Solomon, the wisest man, spent three chapters in the book of Proverbs stressing the importance of not only getting wisdom but obtaining understanding, so we don't fall to be a fool.

It reminds me of the classic salty fry technique: McDonalds puts so much salt on their fries so that we buy a supersize drink. Fries alone may taste good, but it also makes us thirsty, it whet's our appetite for more!

Solomon can give us all kinds of great wise sayings, but there is so much more to learn from Proverbs. Solomon is just whetting our appetite for more for more wisdom and for more knowledge.
Unfortunately, when it comes to wisdom and knowledge, sometimes we order off of the value menu. We allow things like disunity, negativity and sour attitudes to alter our clear mindset on what we understand to be true.

We must turn our eyes back to the big tall glass of water in our spirits and let God whet our appetite for more of Him and more of His wisdom and more of His knowledge!

Christians are to be the salt of the earth (Matthew 5:13), so how thirsty for God are those around you?
