What do I mean?
Well read the following two Bible verses: ‘The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. For by me your days will be multiplied, And years of life will be added to you.” (Proverbs 9: 10,11 NASB)
See the math here? Multiplied and added??
To fear (respect) the Lord is only the beginning of wisdom. Having that attitude helps us have the right approach of humility when relating to God. It also helps us take the approach of being a learner rather than an expert.
If we will but seek to know Him, and walk in His wisdom (skill for living), then our lives will be more fruitful and each day will be more satisfying and productive.
I like the sounds of that kind of math!
