The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, shining
ever brighter till the full light of day. 19 But the way of the wicked
is like deep darkness; they do not know what makes them stumble.
more a person walks in the light of God's wisdom, the more he is able
to see. As the light increases, the clearer things become. As the

Response and Action:
am encouraged by the idea that knowledge leads to more knowledge. I'm
inspired by the promise that living in the light of wisdom will result
in greater light and wisdom. I want to grow in truth and
understanding every day.
I will seek God's wisdom
through study, knowing that as I learn and grow, I will get
increasingly more out of the things I am studying. I will explore and
consider things that stretch my mind. I will seek out meaningful
conversations with others, trusting that deep questions and
discussions will lead me to deeper understanding. I will humble myself
before God through prayer, worship, and obedience, believing that the
more I see the light of Christ, the more clearly I will see
everything else by that light.
God, guide my steps in the light of your truth. Help me to walk in
the light as Christ is in the light. Make your wisdom to shine brighter
and brighter each day I live. Help me to see the light and to see by
the light. Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart; Naught be all else
to me, save that Thou art. Be thou my best Thought, by day or by
night--waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light. Amen.

or brought out into the open. 18

more; whoever does not have, even what he thinks he has will be taken
