Dan’s Online Diary 

# 4.2.03 by Dan
Just been reading Proverbs 4.
It strikes me that all too often wisdom is seen as something boring and old-fashioned in today's culture - you're a geek if you seek after understanding. But the writer(Solomon, I'm assuming??) here says in v7 - "Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding.". Though it cost all you have - this means that we should forsake the things of this world to gain wisdom. This is a very powerful verse - one that would not go down well in today's society.
I think the world replaces wisdom with pleasure - it doesn't matter what you know or believe as long as you are happy - but as God's people, we should seek His wisdom at the expense of our own comfort.
Lets don't be ignorant and lets not be happy to believe something cos thats what someone else believes, or because it 'sounds like a good idea'. We need to seek the truth for ourselves and question what we believe, that we might grown in wisdom and understanding.

We put an offer in on a house last night - it is a backup offer - the vendors are already negotiating with a purchaser, so we're praying lots. It really would be perfect for us - location is good, it has new kitchen and bathroom big bedrooms, good outdoor flow, easy-care garden, room for cars, quiet street - the list goes on.

Well, would like to say more but I gotta get ready for work - might get back to you later iof we hear back on our offer. Have a great day!
