Tuesday, July 4th: Job 28-29; Acts 13:1-25 ~ Jody

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is: Job 28-29; Acts 13:1-25

“The fear of the Lord—that is wisdom. And to turn from evil is understanding.” Job 28:28

In the earlier verses Job talks about all the different places man looks for wisdom. I love the picture he paints in this chapter. To the centre of the earth where miners travel, the depths of the ocean, the wealth of pearls - nowhere can wisdom be found except in the Lord.

I also appreciate that a crucial piece of the formula is that to understand, we must turn from evil. It's not enough to just seek wisdom, we have to turn from evil as well.

Tomorrow's Bible In a Year Passage:Job 30-31; Acts 13:26-52

Job 28:18
Coral and quartz are not worth mentioning.
The price of wisdom is beyond pearls.

The value of true wisdom from God is priceless, but like Jodie mentioned, we have to turn from evil first.

This was the verse that stood out to me as well. Wisdom is only found in God, and following Him requires repentance.
