Proverbs in Pictures #6

All the verbs here put the impetus on us, as receivers, inclining our hearts, as callers, raising our voices, as seekers and searchers, looking for treasure ... and THEN we are promised understanding.

If we desire to know God, and to have understanding and wisdom, then we must be proactive... looking into His words, His commandments, His wisdom, His insight & understanding. We must chase Him as we are inclined to chase wealth, in the same way that we are drawn toward the adventure of a treasure hunt. Ultimately, it means we must spend time conversing with Him in prayer, and actively getting to know Him through His Word.
