Proverbs in 365 Devotions

May 12

Proverbs 9:9 Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser; teach a righteous man, and he will increase in learning.

Keep Eating Healthy

Keep Learning Truth

Keep Following Good Instruction

Daniel Castor

Instruction to a wise man is like a hardy meal, it nourishes him and brings him strength. But will he ever stop eating or stop needing nourishment? Of course not! While food satisfies for a time there is always the need for more so that you may continue to grow and live.


The same goes for instruction. While a little bit of instruction will bring about more wisdom the need will not stop there. We will always need it.


A wise man is on the search for instruction just as a hungry man is for food. This should be our attitude towards Gods holy word. What other book ever written is packed with more truth and God glorifying instruction?  


Let us not only be hungry for Gods word, But let us also be satisfied by it.
