For the next seven day I am going to blog the definition of each of the words of wisdom in Proverbs. Today the word is “Understanding".
Biblical Definition of Understanding
To understand something is defined as the ability to comprehend, intellect, a person’s ability to judge or discern a situation or issue. The word in its biblical use also means to have a sympathetic awareness and a tolerance for others situations and issues before speaking. Tolerance means to be aware of other’s feelings and to be forgiving.
Understanding is the ability to use your life’s body of knowledge and experience to have the insight to meditate on God’s word before making life’s decisions
