Study God. Become an authority on His thoughts and ways. Build a strong work ethic around your studying until you have the ability to accurately understand God’s Word. From this place of wisdom, you will find that you can often cut to the heart of any matter.
2 Timothy 2:15 — Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.
Hebrews 4:12 — For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
Psalm 119:105 — Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.
