Read and Meditate on Today’s Pastor Chuck Swindoll’s Insight For Today Daily Devotional for 16th June 2022. May the Lord bless you as you study today!

INSIGHT FOR TODAY 16 JUNE 2022, THURSDAY DEVOTIONAL

Today’s Topic: The Legacy of Learning, Part One

Scriptures: Daniel 1:17–20; 2:19–23

Slice it any way you wish, ignorance is not bliss. Dress it in whatever garb you please, ignorance is not attractive. Neither is it the mark of humility nor the path to spirituality. It certainly is not the companion of wisdom.

On the contrary, it is the breeding ground for fear, prejudice, and superstition . . . the feeding trough for unthinking animals . . . the training field for slavery. It is blind and naked (Tennyson), the mother of impudence (Spurgeon), it brings despairing darkness (Shakespeare), never settles a question (Disraeli), nor promotes innocence (Browning). And yet it remains the favorite plea of the guilty, the excuse of the lazy—and even the Christian’s rationalization for immaturity.

We dare not fall into that trap! Our spiritual fathers didn’t. Trace your heritage back to Moses and you find that the people were given the Truth of God in written form that they might know and that their children might know the right path to follow.

In Samuel’s day, a school of the prophets was formed to dispel the ignorance among the people.

This philosophy carried into the New Testament as Jesus frequently rebuked His listeners for not reading, not knowing the underlying principles for living. How often Paul expressed similar convictions with such strong words as, “I do not want you to be unaware.” Dr. Luke commended the church at Berea because they were “examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so” (Acts 17:11).

Daniel and his three fellow Hebrews mentioned in Daniel 1 provide one of many biblical examples of human intellect employed for God’s purposes. As you read today’s Scripture, notice the quality and the source of Daniel’s intellect.

What can you do to receive fully the mental riches God makes available to you? How can you get started today?

PRAYER OF SALVATIONA MINUTE PRAYER COULD SAVE YOU “O Lord God, I believe with all my heart in Jesus Christ, Son of the living God. I believe He died for me and God raised Him from the dead. I believe He’s alive today. I confess with my mouth that Jesus Christ is the Lord of my life from this day. Through Him and in His Name, I have eternal life; I’m born again. Thank you Lord for saving my soul! I’m now a child of God. Hallelujah!” Congratulations! You are Born Again... Get closer to God by reading your BIBLE and worshiping with other believers.
