Proverbs 2:2-4, 10
“Tune your ears to wisdom, and concentrate on understanding. Cry out for insight, and ask for understanding. Search for them as you would for silver; seek them like hidden treasures. For wisdom will fill your heart, and knowledge will fill you with joy.
Have you ever been on a treasure hunt? It's exciting, isn't it, to look for something hidden—especially when you know that what you find will be something good to eat or something fun to play with.
These verses say to go on a treasure hunt for wisdom and understanding. As you read the Proverbs, they will show you wisdom and hidden treasures (smart things to do and say) if you listen up and pay attention. If your heart is filled up with good, wise things, you will be joyful—a deep happiness in your heart that no one can take away.
Dear Lord, please help me to look for and find wisdom as I hear the Bible. Please help me listen up and pay attention to all that you would like me to learn. Thank you for the deep-down joy you give me. In Jesus' name, Amen.
