Proverbs 24:13-14 — 13 Eat honey, dear child—it’s good for you—and delicacies that melt in your mouth. 14 Likewise knowledge, and wisdom for your soul—Get that and your future’s secured, your hope is on solid rock (MSG).
The main uses of honey are in cooking and baking. It can also be used as an addition to certain beverages, such as tea and coffee. Honey mustard is a popular sauce flavor. Honey is very versatile, and it serves a variety of purposes. Not everyone may like honey, but everyone would agree that it is sweet to the taste.
Honey may not be the featured ingredient in very many dishes, but it enhances the flavor of everything it touches. much the same way, knowledge and wisdom enhance every area of your life. Most people do not make obtaining knowledge and wisdom a focal point of their lives. If you happen to be one of them, my prayer is that you will become a student of God’s word.
Be knowledgeable in every area of your life. Familiarize yourself with the information you need in order to make everyday decisions. Many people sacrifice their futures for one of two reasons. They either make decisions because they lack knowledge in a certain area, or they have the knowledge but don’t use wisdom in their decision-making.
Be led by the Spirit of God. He will make you look like a genius. Galatians 5:25 says, “If we live by the [Holy] Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. [If by the Holy Spirit we have our life in God, let us go forward walking in line, our conduct controlled by the Spirit]” (AMP). If the Holy Spirit controls your conduct, your future will be secure.
I want to encourage you to begin thinking about your legacy. Do not be narrow-minded in the way you run your life. The decisions you make today affect the future of the generations to come. Don’t allow your expectation to be cut off.
Ephesians 1:8 — He has showered His kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding (NLT).
