"Wisdom is before him that hath understanding; but the eyes of a fool are in the ends of the earth." (Proverbs 17:24)
Today’s Morsel: Two of the major tenets of combat are wisdom and understanding. Telling everything that you know sinks ships, and not knowing what you are doing gets people killed. Solomon said that wisdom is before him that has understanding. Wisdom is clearly seen by those who have it. Wisdom and understanding go hand in hand. Gill commentary says of this passage: “It is near him, to direct and assist him; it is before him as a rule to walk by, and it is the mark he aims at. A man of spiritual understanding has the book of wisdom before him, the Scriptures of truth, which are able to make a man wise to salvation; and he steers his course according to them; he sets Christ, the Wisdom of God, always before him; and keeps his eye on the mark for the prize, all the while he is running his Christian race.” Yet he of the fool he says: “But the eyes of a fool are in the ends of the earth; where wisdom is not to be found, it is far off from him; his mind is wandering after every object, is unsettled and unfixed to anything; and which may be discerned in his eyes, which are rolling about and turning, first one way and then another; and which shows the levity and inconstancy of his mind.” Open the Bible, read it, mediate on it, observe it, and watch wisdom and understanding flow into your life.
