Ecclesiastes 10:10 – If the axe is dull and its edge unsharpened, more strength is needed but skill will bring success. (NIV 1984)
My Musings – Aptitude may come natural, but skill requires practice. We may have an aptitude for understanding God’s Word, but not skillful in using it. We need to be skillful in the use of God’s Word. This is done by regular reading and meditation.
My Advice – Do not wait until trouble comes or decisions need to be made to consult God’s Word. Your skill in discerning will be dull and require more effort because it has not been sharpened. Discernment is sharpened and success made easier by regular study of His Word.
