A Life and Death Choice

Proverbs 1:28-29
"Then they will call on me, but I will not answer; They will seek me diligently, but they will not find me.
Because they hated knowledge And did not choose the fear of the Lord,

1:7 describes the foundational principle in the book of Proverbs - "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge." For me, someone who wan to become wise, it starts with having the right perspectiveof God - His awesomeness and His greatlove. It produces a humble and teachable attitude in me. It make me hungry for His attention and produces in me a desire to please and obey Him.

This Proverb says that there are those that the LORD will not respond to. It is because they have developed a pattern of rejecting His counsel and ignoring His correction (v. 30). Idon't think that God witholds from them as much as they become unable to recgnize His voice, or find Him becase they don't know where to look for Him.

It goes on to say that these are left to suffer the consequences of ther own choices - "filled to the full with thier own fancies" (v. 31). Eventually, thier complacency- thier lack ofpursuingGod and governing thier own lives will kill them (v. 32).

Lord, I want to be in proper alignment with You. To fear You, to know You, to hear You, to be led by You. I want to have knowldge and gain wisdom.
