#Proverbs – Chapter 9: Wisdoms Reward

Scripture:
Proverbs 9:11-12
For through wisdom your days will be many, and years will be added to your life. If you are wise, your wisdom will reward you; if you are a mocker, you alone will suffer.

Observation:
We already know that wisdom comes from the Lord alone and that if we seek him and ask for it he will bestow it upon us. These verses tell of the rewards of wisdom verses the consequences of the lack of wisdom. Wisdom can add years to your life. Maybe not your physical life, but definitely your spiritual life. The lack of wisdom results in suffering, possibly from your attitude and choices you make because of the lacking.

Application:
Seek the Lord and His wisdom that you may have a rewarding spiritual life and not become a mocker and endure the suffering caused by poor choices. Pray that God will give you the wisdom to follow his instruction and plan for your life.

Prayer:
Lord, give me wisdom and help my unbelief. Show me yours ways that I may follow you. Mold my attitude and outlook.
