This verse in Proverbs 1:4 goes on to offer knowledge and discretion to the youth. The Word of God is an amazing tool that the Holy Spirit uses to quiet the carnal nature and inspire within us a passion for Jesus Christ and His will. By nature we are all lost and even physically , totally reliant on God for our sustaining. We live on a tiny planet in the middle of an hauntingly massive and threatening space , traveling at 10,000 mph through the unknown , and have been doing that since Creation – about 6000 years. We are warmed by an atomic ball of energy ( the sun) that is around 93,000,000 miles away and that is our sole source of life , apart from God. Feel small and helpless yet? Look up. Look up. God has a purpose for you today and has even promised wisdom for the day ( James 1:5) – just as if I was really wise!! Have a blessed day, Bro Warren J
