We all need wisdom and understanding. God understands us more than anyone – even ourselves! We all have a need to understand and to be understood. Jesus understands us when we feel overwhelmed, when problems come, even though we may fail to fully understand the reason.
Understanding in our lives is the key that unlocks many doors. It broadens our insight, widens our horizons, especially in our relating to others. Understanding sees underneath the surface. It helps us to pray for the cause, not just the symptoms.
