Proverbs 1:10 – Verse of the Day 1/6/14
The opening chapter of the book of Proverbs consists of a prologue, a warning against temptation, and a warning against rejecting wisdom. This verse helps to orient the warning against temptation. In many ways the opening chapter is a microcosm of the book as a whole, for the best way to avoid temptation is to seek wisdom. True wisdom does not consent to evil actions.
As you pray, ask the Lord to make you wise to seek wisdom and avoid evil. Consider whether there are areas of your life where you are tempted to believe the ‘wisdom’ of the world rather than biblical wisdom, and ask the Lord for conviction and discernment in those areas. Thank the Lord that He has given you His Holy Spirit to apply His word to your heart and help you to seek the truth as you learn more and more of the Bible.
