Here are some brief thoughts i noted after reading Proverbs Chapter 3.
Wisdom and understanding of God- from Him, is the greatest treasure in life since God- in His Wisdom, made the earth, and we are made in His image, so we have the ability to obtain knowledge.
Wisdom is actually one of the biggest and most crucial goals we can achieve, and there is no stopping point when we can say,'Right, i've got wisdom now, so i don't need any more- i can move on.'
No, wisdom is on going, and we need to remember humility and acceptance of our continuous slip ups. It takes a special inner wisdom to humbly take responsibility, and put aside all pride and be ready and open to correction without being indignant, or too ashamed to get back up again.
When we consider that God gives us the knowledge sufficient for us, and compare it to His infinate wisdom, we can remember our place with Him(and our size!). We must also accept that some things are meant to be kept unknown to us, whether it is for our own safety, or some other reason we also don't know, one thing we can know, is that God has a reason for keeping some things unveiled, and it is for our own good, and His sake.(Lets face it, we haven't yet and never will master the wisdom available to us now- i imagine that some of the things God has kept from our knowing, would blast our heads off and send us mad!)
Too much knowledge at the wrong time, without God's guidance can be harmful, especially if it is unecessary to know and will not be fruitfull.
Do not withhold good things from others- especially when they deserve it, or would make their day. To withhold that, is cruel, and not our right to use what we know for evil ways of jealousy and other sin.
We must equally be carefull of what we do do with what we know.We need wisdom to use our knowledge, and master it, so we can show God that we can be trusted with knowledge.

Another great piece for all friend. I used to write sometimes with the small 'i' or I came out too strong. But stopped doing it ..maybe I should get back into occasionaly - it is not the norm...so should perhaps pray about it eh?
There was a lot here and the last two paras also spoke out to me.
Keep sharing that we all may learn and grow. God bless friend. Luv Trudy
