Proverbs 4, 13

I.

All of us alike begin the life void of knowledge.  All we ever know we learn from others.  None can know it all; there is too much and we also lack time.

II.

Knowledge is power, the working tools of life.  We should equip ourselves for usefulness, learn all we can; we will need it and more.

III.

Hence we should very much appreciate every opportunity to learn.  A good teacher is a great benefactor, a fine friend, a mighty blessing to the eager mind.

“Take fast hold of instruction,” be eager to learn every truth you can and make it your own.  It will make your life fuller, stronger, fuller, richer.

IV.

Let wisdom learn how best to use knowledge.  Walk in wisdom’s ways; avoid the evil, pass not by it, turn from it.  Not to do so will make one miserable, rob life of its joy.

“The path of the just is as the shining light that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.”
