Day Thirty-Nine – הַיּוֹם תִּשְׁעָה וּשְׁלֹשִׁים לָעֹמֶר
Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:1–2
“My thoughts are not your thoughts…”
God has told us that His thoughts are beyond our ability to fully comprehend. Yet, He communicates to us the things we need to know. His message from the start was that His plans for us are good. He recorded the fall of man and His solution to their debt of sin. All of us need to be renewed by His truth. The book of Proverbs describes this process as getting wisdom and understanding. God gives true wisdom to His people. Is it possible to have a life goal to obtain wisdom and not ever be wise in your own eyes? How do we understand God’s type of wisdom?
• In what ways am I chronically naive? Do I have patterns of thought or behavior that God desires to transform?
• What is God’s process for growing in wisdom? How do the dynamics of discipleship support this process of transformation?
• Read the Proverbs 1:1–7 together in a group. What are the goals of the instruction of this book as presented in these verses. How do we work together to support one another in learning, doing, and teaching these skills?
