I started studying the book of Proverbs last week ~ with the help of J. Vernon McGee.  It has been such a wonderful blessing.

Today, I came across Prov. 4:5-6 "Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not neither decline from the words of my mouth.  Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep the."

McGee: "Notice that he says that wisdom will 'preserve' and 'keep' the young man.
       The great difference in contemporary educators is pinpointd in this verse.  Do they love wisdom?  In other words, do they love the Word of God?  It was Pascal who said that human knowledge must be understood to be loved.  But devine knowledge must be loved to be understood.  So if you are going to understand the Word of God, you must bring to it love and a mind that is willing to be taught.  Then the spirit of God can open up the great truths to you.  How important it is to see this.  He says, 'love her, and she shall keep thee.' "

What a wonderful truth!
