A Weekend Of Understanding

Anyone who looks at my rose bush right now can tell that it's got issues. I would never have called it full and healthy before, but it's definitely seen better days. Fall and the colder weather are taking their toll and it's just been pruned back for the winter.

Someone who doesn't know anything about plants, or roses in particular, might think this little bush is past its usefulness and rip it out. They don't notice the new, pink leaves that are coming through and green shoots that are replacing the old, weary stalks.

Without the understanding of this rose bush's potential, watering and feeding it would seem pointless. Someone without knowledge and understanding wouldn't put in the time and effort to make this beautiful little plant bloom in cascades of blossoms in the spring.

Wisdom is the principle thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thine getting get understanding. Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her. Proverbs 4:7-8

Make this a weekend of getting understanding. Whatever topics you're ignorant about (Lord knows I have a bucket full in that category), search out the answers. Seek out God's wisdom for the things you don't understand. That's how we find promotion and honor - when we're embracing the importance of the Lord's understanding.
