KNOWLEDGE

Proverbs 15:14

 

The heart of him that hath understanding seeketh knowledge: but the mouth of fools feedeth on foolishness.

 

LESSON

 

Our food has much to do with making us what we are. The same is true of us morally. We become like that on which we feed; and we feed on what our hearts crave. The man of understanding values knowledge, and devotes himself to its pursuit. The fool cares not for that which would build true character and draw him from his evil ways, but feeds on folly and vanity, thus becoming all the time more empty and foolish than before.

The pursuit of wisdom and knowledge are life-long occupations—never fully realized in this lifetime. Imitate David, Jeremiah, and Job. Do not allow yourself to fall into the ways of the mixed multitude, who lost their appetite for angels’ food by lusting after Egyptian dainties.
