Start with God—the first step in learning is bowing down to God;
only fools thumb their noses at such wisdom and learning.
Proverbs 1:7 (TM)
The first two steps of Alcoholics Anonymous’ Twelve Steps go like this:
- We admitted we were powerless over alcohol—that our lives had become unmanageable.
- We came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
That’s Proverbs 1:7 in practical application and it’s true no matter what issue has me down. The first step to wisdom (and recovery, success, restoration, maturity, sanity, etc.) is humility and surrender.
