If you do this, then that will happen. You've heard of that before. It is the old "cause and effect" happening that we have dealt with all of our lives. But many Christians have tied this truth to living by a set of rules or in a legalistic pattern. Which all of that couldn't be further from the truth.
That passage is pretty clear. If we take God as His word, we will see benefits that go far beyond what we could do or even be on our own. To understand and know God is what a disciple desires. It is what I desire. Here are the facts in the "if - then" truth:
treasure HIS words + pay attention to HIS wisdom + think through and stretch for HIS truth + ask for HIS insight = understand and know HIM
Makes a lot of sense. Try it and live it. God's truth will change our lives. Let it!
