Ever seen a badly built house? Ever lived in one? If you aren’t sure, you haven’t; you would know. And the life you build is pretty much like a house; you can build it well or badly and it does show.
By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches.
(Proverbs 24:3-4 ESV)
The wisdom of house-building is caught up in both knowledge and skill; knowing what things must be done to build a strong and lasting structure must also combine with the skill of doing the tasks properly. Build a great frame on a weak foundation and the house will fall down. Build a weak frame on a strong foundation and the house will fall down. You get the picture. Life is built the same way; by wisdom and understanding of the things that are important and fundamentally necessary we lay foundations in relationships, careers, in work and friendship, but we must also execute those skills, do those things well that life requires or we’ll be like the psychiatrist in all the jokes who knows every symptom for every mental illness in the world, but can’t deal with the people around him. And if we are not carefully filling our lives with the things that wisdom and understanding and knowledge show to be good, what do we have left?
Lord I ask for an always learning mind and an open heart that you might instruct me in wisdom, and teach me to live with grace and love for others.
