Reading Proverbs in the words of Eugene Peterson is really quite unique. His own take on these words of Solomon help to make them come alive. See what you think of this:
Good friend, take to heart what I'm telling you; collect my counsels and guard them with your life. Tune your ears to the world of Wisdom; set your heart on a life of Understanding. That's right—if you make Insight your priority, and won't take no for an answer, Searching for it like a prospector panning for gold, like an adventurer on a treasure hunt, Believe me, before you know it Fear-of-God will be yours; you'll have come upon the Knowledge of God. (Proverbs 2:1-5 MSG)
Ever thought of tuning your ears to wisdom? Or "setting your heart" on understanding?
These words make me want to try at least!
What about you?
Be blessed friends.
