Proverbs 2:2 (msg) Tune your ears to the world of Wisdom; set your heart on a life of Understanding.
I think the way the message bible translates this is brilliant. Tune your ears, set your heart.
In today’s cultural and moral relativistic society many have decided to create their standards based on what they want. Not believing in any absolutes causes us to rationalize and justify our behavior by making our wants the central figure in life. If we are the center there is nothing greater than us and we can justify ourselves with the thought that the greatest aspiration in life is to please ourselves. What a mess of things we make when we subscribe to such thinking.
This scripture is saying there is a wisdom greater than you, you can not tune it to you, you must tune to it. If we will have fulfilling life we must realize that God and His infinite wisdom are the center not ourselves. We must bend to God and His way of thinking not our own.
We can’t set our radio on any frequency and demand that the radio station come to us, we must tune our radio to the station if we want to hear the music.
We can’t mold God to fit us, we must tune in to His wisdom and let Him shape us.
I encourage you to tune in and listen to the sweet music of fulfilled life.
