GET UNDERSTANDING: PEOPLE IN MY COMMUNITY.

"Through Your precepts, I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way" - Psalm 119:104
.
It's lack of understanding that makes people to be deceived in life. And what many call understanding, that is, they know what they're doing, is a promotion of ignorance.
.
Adam and Eve thought they had understanding but they do not, this is why the devil succeeded in deceiving them (Gen. 3:4-5). How can you get understanding in life?
.
Your education, exposure or experience cannot fetch you the understanding that you need in life. This is why in all your getting, you should get understanding (Prov. 4:7).
.
The only place where you can get understanding is through His precept (Ps. 119:104). Studying and meditating in His word gives you the understanding that can't be acquired anywhere in life. Because His law is spiritual (Rom. 7:14), you'll get spiritual understanding from it.
.
Going into the world to acquire knowledge will lead you into deception. But the acquisition of the knowledge that comes from Him will give you the right understanding of life and situations.
.
You'll get understanding from God when you gather the knowledge from His word. This is why you must be a diligent student of His word. The best that you might get from men or the society is to mislead you.
.
Where do you run to to get understanding? The outcome of your life would show whether you have understanding or not. It's understanding that would make you to see the consequence of a thing than to ignore it and be faced with its consequences.
