Some gifts come with instruction manuals. Most of which none of want to read - we just want to get to the goods of the gift!!!
However, I'll be using this verse as one of my instructions for this new year.
Let the wise hear and increase in learning
and the one who understands obtain guidance.
From my own journal this morning...
1. Hear - Lord give me ears to hear your instructions for every step You want me to take this new year.
2. Increase in Learning - Lord I want to read more this new year and not waste time in front of the TV.
3. Understanding & Guidance - Lord, first I want to gain understanding for the things You want me to understand and then seek Your guidance instead of doing things my way.
Have a great Sunday unwrapping your new 2012 gift!
