Understanding

When I was a girl, I watched as my mother’s stomach grew round. I understood there was a baby growing inside her.

In Junior High, I learned about conception in sex ed. I understood how my brother grew in her belly.

It wasn’t until I gave birth to our first son that I truly understood the process. It broadened my understanding!

Age and experience are two ways to broaden your understanding.

Job 12:3, “But I have understanding as well as you; . . .” Modern English Version

Some understanding is God-given.

1 King’s 4:29, “God gave Solomon wisdom and very great insight, and a breadth of understanding as measureless as the sand on the seashore.” New International Version

But what if you are young, inexperienced, and God hasn’t given you understanding beyond your years? Is there anything you can do?

Yes!

Psalms 119:32, “I run in the path of your commands, for you have broadened my understanding.” New International Version
