Is Your House Built Upon The Wisdom of God?
Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established: And by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches. (Proverbs 24:3-4 KJV)
Wisdom, understanding, and knowledge are essential building blocks. They are vital in building a sturdy house to weather the storms of life.
Knowledge is the foundation which allows wisdom to bloom and understanding to follow. Without having all elements of this three-tiered base, a house is without a firm foundation and left wavering not having a sustainable or eternally lasting pleasant and precious nature.
If you were to ask many people, if they are honest with you, they will say they desire to have blessings and riches, both of a physical and spiritual nature. People innately desire lives filled with blessings and to have days which are both pleasant and lasting. However, not all people are willing to seek the wisdom of God. He is the foundation required to receive enduring pleasant and precious riches.
Many start out to build their house without the first building block properly in place. They lack a personal relationship with God. Therefore, they are missing vital layers, such as understanding, knowledge, or even the “cream-filled” center consisting of God’s precious and pleasant riches.
