Let’s keep our eyes on Jesus so that He can help us to take our thoughts captive! It may require us to do our homework and even do some research!
Scripture from Today’s Devotional:
‘The mind of the prudent [always] acquires knowledge, And the ear of the wise [always] seeks knowledge. ‘Proverbs 18:15
God’s Word is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our paths! God’s Word never returns void and so we need to meditate on it day and night! We need to fill our hearts with God’s Word and our minds too!
Let’s be the dads who acquire knowledge! Let’s be the dads who turn to the Holy Spirit to receive wisdom on how to use this knowledge! Let’s be the dads who are always on the lookout to find knowledge!
