A young girl got converted and repented from her old way of living. One day, she came to her pastor for counseling. As she sat down close to the table, the pastor said, “I am going to teach you how to steal, to drink, to lie and to swear.” Being a young convert, she was confused. The pastor continued: “I want to teach you how to steal time out of every day to read something from the book of Proverbs. And then I want to teach you how to drink from it clear, refreshing water, to lie on your bed at night and meditate on its great themes, and to swear that by the grace of God you will put into practice its wonderful teaching.” On hearing the explanation, the girl sighed. (Excerpt from Selwyn Hughes)

A lot of people steal from the government pulse and defraud their neighbors. To be wealthy in all round, you must steal from the word of God on daily basis and be guided by it. For you to be intoxicated, you need to drink the anointing of the Holy Spirit, not olive oil or strong wines. To have a sense of direction, you must lie down during your quiet time and meditate on the word of God. If you don’t have time for the word of God, this world will never have time for you. Don’t say you don’t have time. Susana Wesley gave birth to nineteen children but she also dedicated one hour out of her 24 hours in a day to pray, study God’s word and to meditate.
Selwyn Hughes said, “Millions of people know how to make a living but do not know how to live. They know everything about life except how to live it. I tell you, the more you understand the book of proverbs and the more you put its truths and principles into practice, the more effective will be your living.”
The book of proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Sirach and the Wisdom of Solomon are the citadel of wisdom. If you want to know how to live and be wise, steal from them, drink from them, lie on them and swear with them that you are going to be a doer, not just a hearer.
