Beautiful Home Furnishings

My precious Preacher husband is away preaching a revival this week. Ed Yarborough preached for us yesterday, and he mentioned the verses Proverbs 24: 3-4. Well these verses jumped out at me, so I thought I would blog about them today. "By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; and by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches." So many times we pray for Wisdom, and then we leave it at that. But these verses are showing us that there is more to it than that. We can pray for wisdom, and the Lord can give us wisdom and understanding, but what are we doing on our part? (Vs. 4) says that by knowledge the rooms of this wisdom built house are furnished. These furnishings are described as precious, and pleasant. What are we doing to increase our knowledge? Are you reading God's Word daily? Are you sitting in on the teachings of great and knowledgeable teachers and speakers? There are so many different things you can do to learn these days. With the internet at most peoples fingertips, you can also go on itunes and enter a certain speakers name and subscribe to their podcasts absolutely free! What are you reading? We should continue to learn and grow, we never know it all. We have never arrived no matter how old we are. I was so excited to read these verses! No matter who you are, or what your financial budget is, we can furnish our " Spiritual Home" with beautiful furnishings by doing what we can to increase our knowledge of the Lord and His Word. I wonder what I can learn next? I have a few ideas, and I'm sure they will be precious and pleasant furnishings that will bring richness to my spiritual life!
