"The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding." Proverbs 4:7. A very wise saying indeed.
Wisdom "shepherds" us, and even the steps we take are guided by wisdom, when we embrace wisdom and understanding and knit it to our hearts and minds.
Amen.

"Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it." Proverbs 4:23. This verse has always stood out to me as an important command, and I try my best to follow it. It also reminds me of Proverbs 21:2 because God knows our hearts and what they desire. Human desires often desires things of this world, so we need to give our hearts to the LORD.

Proverbs 4:

This verse stood out for me today:

"But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day." ~Proverbs 4:18

Reminds me of this verse:

"But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day." ~Proverbs 4:18

that is lovely!
6 Don’t turn your back on wisdom, for she will protect you.
Love her, and she will guard you.
7 Getting wisdom is the wisest thing you can do!
And whatever else you do, develop good judgment.

18 But the path of the just is like the shining sun,
That shines ever brighter unto the perfect day.

Proverbs 4:

This is so PROFOUND. It's a bottom line component of wisdom "heard" and welcomed into one's heart, as if it's written right into one's heart and mind. One's heart should literally be under "lock and key", so to speak, and "guarded" from all that would lead it astray.

Amen.

Proverbs 4:18-22
18 But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day. 19 The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble. 20 My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. 21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. 22 For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.

I really enjoyed reading this in the Amplified version.

Proverbs 4:8-9 AMP
"Prize wisdom [and exalt her], and she will exalt you;
She will honor you if you embrace her.
She will place on your head a garland of grace;
She will present you with a crown of beauty and glory."
