"Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves." ~ Matthew 10:16, NKJV
As it is written, "How much better it is to get wisdom than gold! And to get understanding is to be chosen above silver." Understanding is knowing the ways of the father. Wisdom is knowing how to walk in the ways of the Father in every moment. Ignorance is not knowing the ways of the Father, and foolishness is choosing to walk in your own ways rather than the Father's ways. Living in ignorance and walking in follishness will bring futility, deception, despair, and harm into your life. My Father and I have a wondrous, eternal purpose for you during your remaining time on earth. Ignorance and foolishness are terrible thieves. They will steal your attention away from that which is most important. They will fill your life with distractions that will prevent you from experiencing and accomplishing all that the Father and I have for you. We have given you everything you need to gain godly understanding and the life-changing wisdom to experience the miraculous power of God. The Holy Spirit is in you. Let Him guide you into all truth through My words and empower you with grace to glorify the Father throughout your day, every day.
"Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart." ~ Matthew 11:29, NASB
