Proverbs in 365 Devotions

Proverbs 18:15 An intelligent heart acquires knowledge, and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.


R Aylor

Can the ear seek out that it might find
Like the doe seeks out the light of day
Like a man pursues true love divine
Or a mountain lion seeks its prey

Check out any gossiper, you can almost watch their ears grow
Like a magic bean stalk or Pinocchio’s nose
Yes, the tongue is a fire, but it still takes the ear
To help spread its flames, of scandal and fear

So then what’s in our heart depends how we listen
The ear of the wise also thrives in their mission
Knowledge for good in our charge for God’s glory
Quest to proclaim the good news of His story

So may we all listen with the greatest of pleasure
To the beautiful sounds that proclaim Jesus Christ
As the supreme, unsurpassed, incomparable treasure
Who’s glory transforms us and gives us life
