Last night I spent a little time talking with my small group about seeking God and the impact it has on our lives when we set time, large or small amounts, aside each day to listen and earnest seek after God. Lot to check off a check list of prayers or rituals, but to continue to develop the relationship with Him.
Take a look at the verbs in this Proverbs. Look at how intense each one is. Notice the action and activity they express.
The Benefits of Wisdom
2 My child, listen to what I say,
and treasure my commands.
2 Tune your ears to wisdom,
and concentrate on understanding.
3 Cry out for insight,
and ask for understanding.
4 Search for them as you would for silver;
seek them like hidden treasures.
5 Then you will understand what it means to fear the Lord,
and you will gain knowledge of God. Proverbs 2:1-5
And now go back and look at the reward! Make time for these verbs today, and each day as you buffet your body, and set out on a quest to really know God!
