8 To acquire wisdom is to love yourself;
people who cherish understanding will prosper.
Yes indeed, it is good when you obey the royal law as found in the Scriptures: “Loveyourneighbor as yourself.”
The way I see these verses is simple. We spend our lives loving and serving others. Yet, we are to love our neighbor AS OURSELVES. If we don’t look after ourselves, and continue to grow, develop, stay in shape, etc, our neighbor is in trouble.
Seems it is a continual flow of seeking first Jesus and His kingdom, learning, and growing, and as we do, we acquire wisdom, and our neighbor gets blessed in the process.
Study, learn, grow, extend, and love this hurting world today!
‘Father, teach us today! Grant us wisdom and understanding. Give us instruction, in whatever manner we need to receive it, that we might truly learn to love our neighbors better. We ask, knowing we are heard and answered, because we ask in Your name Lord Jesus! Amen’
