The discerning heart seeks knowledge, but the mouth of a fool feeds on folly.
(Proverbs 15:14 (NIV))
Do you feel that you are good at discerning the truth, especially God’s truth?
One good way to truly know the correct answer to this question is to look at what your heart seeks. This can be easily determined by your answers to a few more questions.
What do you spend your money on?
What fills your free time?
Do you spend time daily in God’s word?
What do you and your friends do when you are together?
Do you have to change how you act when around people whom you know who are believers in Jesus?
Do you find any excuse that you can to avoid going to church?
Do you feel empty and unfulfilled when you don’t spend time with the Body of Christ?
I could probably keep going, but your answers to these questions will give you a good and truthful understanding of what you truly seek to fill your life with. Just as each of us have specific foods that we like, we also have specific things that we long to put into our lives. Some have an appetite for destruction. Some have an appetite for lust. For some people, it is greed, while for others it is drunkenness and debauchery. Human nature longs for things that always seem to lead to sin and destruction. We must overcome our sinful human nature and seek after God’s truth, wisdom and knowledge. We must cultivate an appetite for righteousness!
What type of appetite do you have?
