“The wise will pay attention to these words and will grow in learning, and the discerning will receive divine guidance,.” Proverbs 1:5 The Voice
The initial building block for knowledge is wisdom. Proverbs 1:1-7 is rich with instruction and a description of what wisdom looks like. The more time I spend in God’s Word the more I am thankful for the wise way He deals with my heart. I am also very thankful for the way He loves me, beautifully and elegantly. It truly is my desire to be a reflection of His love and wisdom to others. As I ponder what that reflection might look like, the image of a lighthouse comes to mind.
A lighthouse is light that is reflected. It is a beacon in a storm. It’s designed to stand firm and withstand intense conditions. It provides safe harbor. It lights the way to provide protection in rocky and dangerous places. It is a beacon to save the lost and light the path to safety.
Lord, let me be a lighthouse that reflects You.
