Proverbs 3:1 (VOICE) My son, always remember what I have taught you; keep my instructions dear to your heart.
Beloved, one who is wise seeks knowledge and understanding. They listen when they are taught. But they do not only listen, they also learn. And then they implement what they have learned. For of what use is the understanding of something that is never applied? That kind of knowledge puffs up. It is of no true value.
Listen, and learn well. Then as you seek to understand, be intentional to apply it to yourself. For My Spirit is fully able to lead you to truth in the perfect timing I have for you. So walk in wisdom, and apply it with understanding.
Proverbs 3:1-4 (VOICE) My son, always remember what I have taught you; keep my instructions dear to your heart. If you do, they will be your guide to a long, healthy, prosperous life. Stay focused; do not lose sight of mercy and truth; engrave them on a pendant, and hang it around your neck; meditate on them so they are written upon your heart. In this way, you will win the favor of God and others, and they will think well of you.
