Proverbs 9:6–Forsake your folly and live, and proceed in the way of understanding.
Wisdom is calling to us, but before we can embrace it, we must first turn our back on the foolish things in our life. Too often we try to have both at the same time and tell ourselves that we can make it work. We try to have our foolish sinful habits and still be obedient to God. But, God wants all of us and for us to live and proceed down the way of understanding, it requires that we first commit to leaving our foolish and sinful ways behind us.
Father, I know that letting go of the foolish things in my life is hard, but I am totally committed to following You. Help me learn to let go of everything that will try to steer me away from Your path of obedience. I want to become more like You every day!
