2 To know [yada`] wisdom [chokmah] and instruction [muwcar];
to perceive [biyn] the words ['emer] of understanding [biynah];
2 To know wisdom and instruction, to understand words of insight, ESV
The subject of the book of Proverbs, is wisdom. Wisdom is the ultimate power by which a person reaches his highest spiritual perfection, by which all other things are brought into harmony with perfect perspective, and is personified by life-giving discernment and creativity.
The purpose of the Proverbs, and the purpose of the Bible, is to educate. To educate, so that a person can know.
Instruction, is the learning by training, combined with the self-discipline of a dedication produced by a genuine desire to learn the ultimate truths of life.
Understanding, is the ability to perceive and discern right from wrong, truth from false, real from pretense.
All too often people failed to achieve wisdom, because they never begin the process of learning by means of instruction.
And that simply means, it is impossible to understand or be oriented to life, when you do not have a foundation of Bible doctrine within your soul.
Without doctrine you have only pretense and invented truths, which are really falsehoods.
Without doctrine, the only thing you can do is play games at impressing others who lack doctrine. Which is to say, a fool, who fools, fools. And that is something that is not worth boasting about.
The entire thrust of the Bible, is to bring people to salvation through Christ, first of all, and then secondly, to bring people to wisdom through instruction in doctrine.
The biggest and only failure of an unbeliever, is to reject Christ.
The biggest failure of the believer in Christ, is to refuse to learn, and therefore not advance in their spiritual life. And the biggest embarrassment of the believer in Christ, is to know that instruction and doctrine is available, but they simply don’t pursue it.
These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.
And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever. To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.
The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.
But you have to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.
