Proverbs is a wealth of wisdom, because of this, my wife and I love to read a chapter before bed. As creative people, God has given us a special kind of wisdom, we see His creation in a different way that others. We also take great joy in expressing that view of the world through our art, in the things we create.
By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established – Proverbs 24:3
Wisdom is important, but as this verse says: “by understanding it is established.” It doesn’t say by our hard work it is established. It doesn’t say that by my own effort a house is established.
God is telling us we need to not only have wisdom, but we need to understand Him. We need to understand who He is, what He has called us to do, and to understand why we see the world in the way that we do.
Do you have an understanding of why you view the world in the way that you do?
