UNCOMMEN: Wise Men – Day 1 – The more you know, the more you know you don’t know.

UNCOMMEN - Wise Men Still Seek Wisdom

Today I searched for a new devotional we haven’t used yet to help encourage and strengthen dads. In my search, I found a new post from UNCOMMEN that aligns with the Christmas season we are stepping into. The idea of finding wisdom and combining it with Christmas drew me to get us started here today. Let’s be wise men.

Today’s Devotional is described as follows:

In light of the Christmas season, we are going to take a look into the gift of Wisdom. Having knowledge and having wisdom are two different things. Join us as we look at seeking wisdom and what to do with it once you have it.

Scripture from Today’s Devotional:

‘The [reverent] fear of the Lord [that is, worshiping Him and regarding Him as truly awesome] is the beginning and the preeminent part of knowledge [its starting point and its essence]; But arrogant fools despise [skillful and godly] wisdom and instruction and self-discipline. ‘

Proverbs 1:7

It’s always interesting when I turn to God’s Word before jumping into the devotionals as it sets the table, provides the foundation, and never returns void! God’s Word is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our paths! Let’s be the dads who choose to live in reverent fear of that Lord by worshipping Him and regarding Him as truly awesome! Let’s be the dads who realize as long as we are alive God’s not done with us and so we still have things to learn! Let’s be the dads who through worshipping God and regarding Him as truly awesome capture that it is just the beginning, the starting point, its essence, and the most important part of knowledge! Let’s be the dads who receive this from God rather than becoming foolish and despising skillful and godly wisdom and instruction and self-discipline!
