I Don’t Get It

Understanding why people do certain things is often a mystery. Everybody does everything they do for a reason, there is always a motive. Proverbs uses the word fool a lot. A fool isn’t primarily a fool because of what they do but because of why they do it. Right, good, and healthy motives will result in good behavior.

Understanding why I do things is also often a mystery. Everything I do has a motive behind it but the fact is I often don’t know what my own motives are. Changing the “why” in my life is the key to changing my life, but so often I don’t even know what the why is, so how can I change it?

Jeremiah 17:9 “The heart is more deceitful than all else
And is desperately sick; Who can understand it?

A steady diet of the Bible will increase wisdom and understanding significantly. The Bible is the very mind of Christ, His thoughts. The person who faithfully reads the Bible everyday and spends time memorizing and meditating on the words of Christ will have wisdom and understanding, and it will be wisdom and understanding, increasingly for and about others.
