Dan at MemorizeTheBibeWithMe.comAncient Jewish Wisdom

  • Doesn’t really have much to do with I.Q. or being “smart”
  • Has everything to do with “orientation towards God”
  • Being “Wise” is less about “being” wise and more about “getting” wise
  • Gaining in Wisdom is merging right-thinking with right-action
  • It’s about making Godly Choices and learning to apply God’s truths to life’s circumstances

Trust In The Lord With All Your Heart

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 
in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.

Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil.  
This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones.

– Proverbs 3:5-8

“Fear of the LORD” – What’s that?

This is a loving “reverence” that includes submission to God’s Lordship and an understanding that all knowledge starts with this submission to God.

  • “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge…” 
    Proverbs 1:7
  • “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of Wisdom…”
    Proverbs 9:10

Compact, Practical Statements that stick in the mind.

The Proverbs are short and compact statements that help keep us oriented towards God.  They are great to memorize and take with us throughout the week so that we can put them into action.  Wisdom is learned over time through application and implementation.  We’ll make mistakes, but over time and with God’s help, we can learn to make Godly choices.  Remember, the highest “good” a person can achieve is to do God’s will.

The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.
– Proverbs 18:10 (KJV)

Stephen, Thanks for posting this Proverb. Many people look for safety in so many things. Money, job, relationships – the list goes on. But this ancient reminder is still true: we find our protection and safety in the LORD. – Dan

Hey Dan, thanks for putting this podcast together. So far I’ve learned John 10:27-30, Proverbs 3:5-6, Colossians 1:9-10, and yesterday I learned Romans 8:38-39. I’ve never been good at memorizing scripture but this has been extremely helpful. I listen to the podcasts while driving to and from work.

I’m wondering if you happen to have any podcasts where you dive directly into the verses, without the commentary?

God bless

Nate, wow you are making awesome progress! I’m glad the podcast has helped you out. It still helps me too. I find myself having to go back from time to time as my memory fades. I don’t know if it will be the same for you or not. As for having podcasts without the commentary – I don’t have any like that right now. Were you looking for just the verse recorded one time or still having it repeated often but first and leaving commentary either off or at the end?
