Scripture of the Day - August 15, 2012

Proverbs 4:7  Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

To understand is to grasp the meaning of, to be thoroughly familiar with, to accept as a fact or truth, to have thorough or technical acquaintance with or expertness in the practice of a certain thing. 
If we are to apply God's Word to our lives we must have an understanding of His Word. How can we apply it if we don't understand it? It's not enough to just read the Bible. It's not enough to just sit on a church pew twice a week. Knowledge alone won't do you much good. You have to know what to do with that knowledge and that's where wisdom and understanding come in. Jesus said "whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man."  James asks, "Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? Let him demonstrate it by his good way of life, by actions done in the humility that grows out of wisdom." Book knowledge won't save you and keep you. You need wisdom and understanding so you can apply that knowledge properly.
