Daily D – Proverbs 23:12
Apply yourself to discipline and listen to words of knowledge.
PROVERBS 23:12 (CSB)
Give yourselves to disciplined instruction; open your ears to tested knowledge.(MSG)
Intelligence is a choice. Ignorance is always an alternative. We are about as smart as we choose to be.
There is no reason to live a life of unknowing today. Learning has never been easier. Books and other reading materials are more readily available than at any time in human history. Podcasts on any and every subject are there to fill gaps of knowledge and to update understanding. YouTube provides instruction for everything from handyman projects to TED Talks.
Consider two kinds of mind-broadening pursuits. Learn more about your field of endeavor. Keep up with the latest trends. Review the foundations. Enhance your expertise. Disciplined attention to detail makes you more productive and effective. This quite often leads to more money deposited in your bank account.
Learn more about your hobby. What would make you better at your game of choice? What would enrich your disciplined pursuit of restorative recreation? What would so enliven your time away from work that it made your time at work more purposeful and productive?
Lifelong learners live broader, deeper lives.
If you really want to maximize your intelligence, take a friend or loved one along on the ride. Do it together. Learn from one another. Encourage one another. Celebrate one another.
Full minds and healthy lifestyles of growth and development honor God and serve others. How will you give God a reason to smile today?
I will pursue enhanced intelligence through disciplined learning.
Our Father, I have so much to learn. Give me a growth plan that honors you and serves others. Amen.
