The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. - Proverbs 9:10 CSB
Throughout the book of Proverbs, the main pivotal truth reinforced is that true wisdom is from God and begins with the fear of the Lord. Our world is filled with opinions and what culture likes to call “objective truth”, which basically means that what one person believes to be true can be true for them, and what another person believes to be true can be true for them. This is completely counter to God’s Word that declares His is the only Truth there is. Half-truths, partial truths, objective truths, human truths are not truth but falsehoods the enemy likes us to believe so that we will be deceived against the only real truth that only comes from God.
If we are not seeking God’s wisdom, truth and knowledge then we are living in falsehoods and believing lies. Seek God and His truth above all else and you will find it and be blessed with the knowledge it brings. God will reveal understanding to those who trust in His truth. Those who lean on human and worldly “truth” will find deception and destruction.
