To gain wisdom one must follow an accurate moral code.
The path of the righteous is like the morning sun, shining ever brighter till the full light of day. But the way of the wicked is like deep darkness; they do not know what makes them stumble. - Proverbs 4:18-19
The "path of the righteous" is that well lit road that God illuminates with His Word and guides us with His Spirit. As we journey down the road the sun (and Son) will get brighter and brighter as we become more obedient to His will and ways.
In contrast "the path of the wicked" is in deep darkness that never brightens. In this darkness sin, evil, pain, and deception will thrive.
The not so funny thing about the dark is that the more we expose ourselves to it – the more we adjust to it until it’s too late. With the sun, it may take some getting used too at first, but then we can bask in its warmth and light. Light and Dark are symbolic with good/evil and heaven/hell. Choose the Son – He’ll bring life giving light and wisdom in your life.
We can find an accurate moral code by using God’s Word.
A good place to start is the Ten Commandments.
- No other Gods
- No idols
- Not use God’s Name in vane
- Remember the Sabbath
- Honor parents
- Do not murder
- Do not commit adultery
- Do Not Steal
- Do not Lie
- Do not covet
Once we’ve done business with God on these we’ll be able to accept more guidance through His Word and Spirit. Amen?
