Late for Work:
Wisdom begins withe FEAR
Knowledge begins with UNDERSTANDING of the HOLY.
Proverbs 9:10- The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom:
and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.
Then we are told that our days can be MULTIPLIED but not just our days but the years of our life with INCREASE.
11- For by me thy days shall be multiplied, and the years of thy life shall be increased.
And we thought we could do that by eating right, running around the block every afternoon after work! I have heard people say "going by the GYM on the way home to workout." Never heard anyone say the were going by the Church on their way to talk with The Lord so I can better get to know Him.
Long days start not with eating fruits and veggies with a side order of lettuce; oh there's nothing wrong with eating health foods. But wisdom comes from fear of The Lord and understanding comes from being knowledgable of the Holy. Which brings on the added bonus of more days which become more years.
The battles on what do we want? To look like Arnold Schwarzenegger which takes a lot of work or to be like David a man after God's on heart? Both take work, one makes you LOOK physically healthy the others increases your life; and you spent how much time in your Bible this morning? Oh that's right you had to get by the GYM first thing so you wouldn't be late for work.
