Proverbs 3:21 My son, let not them depart from thine eyes: keep sound wisdom and discretion:
Proverbs 4:21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.
Wisdom is the predominant topic in the Book of Proverbs and we have seen it repeated and emphasized in many ways. In our current anatomy study we have seen that we are to use our mouth to speak wisdom and our ears to listen to it. Today’s verse tells us that we are to seek wisdom even with our eyes. There are many things we can consume with our eyes but among our top choices should be wisdom. So how can we consume wisdom with our eyes? How can we apply, “Let them [words of wisdom] not depart from thine eyes?” The easiest way is to become a regular consumer of wisdom by being a Bible reader. You can access a Bible from many sources. One easy source that my wife and I use daily is the You Version Bible app on our phones (https://www.bible.com/). They offer many reading plans. The one we use is taking us through the Bible in a year by reading approximately fifteen minutes per day. Reading with your spouse and/or children will improve those relationships. Reading alone will improve your relationship with God. Whether reading it alone or with someone else, the Bible is a great resource for keeping wisdom before our eyes and putting it into our hearts. And the best way to keep it there is to keep going back repeatedly. Make it a daily habit.
