Building Blocks of Wisdom and Understanding Are Essential
Proverbs 24:3 (KJB) Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established.
Any person who has spent time studying architecture, engineering, or has worked in the construction trades knows that a foundation is an important consideration in the building a structure. If a man was to construct a building without safely securing the foundation the building could fall to the ground with the blowing of contrary winds, or with the shake of an earthquake, or collapse under the immense weight of an improperly secured foundation.
A building without the proper footing and foundation will certainly collapse and fall to the ground, likely injuring people in the process.
That is the idea of this simple statement with big implications in this scripture verse.
Constructing a spiritual house is no different than constructing a building in this world. A man cannot build a monument of service and obedience to God without taking care to apply the proper spiritual framing and groundwork which God divinely supplies, for his own spiritual stoutness, along with the potential of preserving the eternal health of others about him.
Yes, God’s Word gives every man simple, but spiritually complex, instructions for establishing the proper framework and underpinning for our spiritual structure. Our spiritual building is to give proper glory and honor to God as we exist in this world. The only way this can be done is to follow and obey God’s blueprints for spiritual success.
Build your spiritual presence in this world with the building blocks of His wisdom and understanding upon the divine blueprints God has prepared for you. There is no other lasting method of constructing a house for ushering in your eternal life and bringing Him glory and honor.
