Understanding is the ability to reason something intelligently or to have full knowledge of something. It is also an act of being compassionate which means placing oneself in another man’s shoe trying to feel what that person feels or is feeling.
Understanding grants want the ability to live life one step at a time so as not to live under pressure to impress anyone for any reason.
A lot of people have passed on in life because they failed to understand that the life we live here is only to the glory of God not to show our human abilities. This is why many die of heart attack, high blood pressure etc.
Understanding puts one in check and not to feel he or she is better than anyone probably because they are more privileged than the other. Understanding helps one to make the right decisions and take the right steps at the right time.
Moreover, understanding God’s word and what he is saying per time helps us to live life less of worry and being anxious about the cares of life.
Job 12:12 says,” with the ancient is wisdom; and in the length of days understanding”. This simply means that understanding helps one to live long. Even the next verse says, “With him is wisdom and strength, he hath counsel and understanding”.
Having the right understanding of a matter brings just counsel on how to approach matters and this will bring about our glorious living.
