When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul;
Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee:
We’ve see that wisdom comes from devotion to God, is something we should be celebrating and it is to be cherished above all other things. Now we find out the benefit of these three approaches. When we have put wisdom in a place of importance, we get some benefits: discretion and understanding. They might not seem flashy at first, but these two things are hugely important. Discretion is also defined as purpose and understanding as insight. When wisdom becomes important to us, we will find our purpose in life and insight into attaining that purpose. These two things will keep us along the way. Try this exercise below and see what happens:
Write out what you think your purpose is in life
Continue to practice excited and committed devotion to God
See how your devotion with God alters or affects your perceived purpose
