Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones.

– Proverbs 3:7-8 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

One of the challenges of learning is that we can think that we know more than we actually do. But this proverb tells us that as we take a different posture to the things that we think that we know, we open ourselves up to new information that can be “tipping points” for us. There is little benefit to being wise in our own eyes, so humility is a necessity with knowledge. Humility keeps the fear of the Lord in front of us AND opens our ears and eyes to the wonderful things that others bring to our lives. Take some time and ask questions of those around you. You might be amazed at how different perspectives can revitalize you and give you new strength.
