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.

I will live with a heart of integrity in my house.“

Psalm 100:3 Acknowledge that the Lord is God.
He made us, and we are his—

Daily D – 1 Kings 19:3-9

1 Kings 19:3-9 Then Elijah became afraid and immediately ran for his life. When he came to Beer-sheba that belonged to Judah, he left his servant there, but he went on a day’s journey into the wilderness. He sat down under a broom tree and prayed that he might die. He said, “I have had enough! Lord, take my life, for I’m no better than my ancestors.” Then he lay down and slept under the broom tree.

Suddenly, an angel touched him. The angel told him, “Get up and eat.” Then he looked, and there at his head was a loaf of bread baked over hot stones, and a jug of water. So he ate and drank and lay down again. Then the angel of the Lord returned for a second time and touched him. He said, “Get up and eat, or the journey will be too much for you.” So he got up, ate, and drank. Then on the strength from that food, he walked forty days and forty nights to Horeb, the mountain of God. He entered a cave there and spent the night. Suddenly, the word of the Lord came to him, and he said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”

Daily D – 1 Kings 14:12-13

1 Kings 14:12, 13 “As for you, get up and go to your house. When your feet enter the city, the boy will die. All Israel will mourn for him and bury him. He alone out of Jeroboam’s house will be given a proper burial because out of the house of Jeroboam something favorable to the Lord God of Israel was found in him.“

Daily D – 1 Kings 12:6-7

1 Kings 12:6, 7 Then King Rehoboam consulted with the elders who had served his father Solomon when he was alive, asking, “How do you advise me to respond to this people?” They replied, “Today if you will be a servant to this people and serve them, and if you respond to them by speaking kind words to them, they will be your servants forever.”
