And by understanding it is established;
By knowledge the rooms are filled
With all precious and pleasant riches.

Reflective Thinking

I love using imagination to help remember important things in life. Here God is painting a picture of what roles wisdom, understanding, and knowledge play in our lives. Wisdom is the primary and principle thing of creation. Your purpose is likely centered around creation and cultivation. We are made in the image of God after all. Understanding is what establishes, gives us deep roots and makes us unshakable, and sets us up to endure the storms of life. This is building our house on the Rock. Knowledge is more than information. It’s also having an understanding of the gifts, talents, and strengths God has given us. It’s knowing our weaknesses, our personality, and what makes us tick. It’s an awareness of how everything in the world works and the laws and systems that govern it.

Action Idea

It would be wise to understand this knowledge. (Ha! See what I did there.) Commit to building, establishing, and furnishing your house on the Rock, Jesus Christ. This is the wisest thing you will ever do in this life.
