How this is written in the King James Version of the Bible is: “that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom. ” The word “our” is italicized. As it has been recognized these words have been inserted to help with the meaning of the verses, however if we do look at the verse without the this word it does take on a different meaning.

We are here to apply hearts unto wisdom not only our own, but for all we are with. Of course, we have to being doing it for ourselves which then enables us to do if for others.

I find it good to not just take the words in the bible only unto ourselves, but to actually realize the divine commission we have to bless the world.

Let us apply our heart unto wisdom, as we apply the heart’s of those in our world unto wisdom.


These words have made me take notice of them and have prompted me to consider them more. First, to be upright in heart I find means to acknowledge and enact the spirit of these words in my living. To be upright in heart means to give attention to that which actually makes me upright in heart. To give attention to the qualities of spirit that makes me remember what is most important. To give attention to that which acknowledges something higher than my conscious awareness. I find that orienting to attitudes of thankfulness and integrity it positions my conscious awareness to receive something of strength and love from I sense the source of myself.

Here I find a greater awareness of my reason for being in how my life expression can be of glory.

May my words touch something in you that you may know  more of the glory of your own life expression.

As we receive into our conscious awareness the reason for our being we come to realize we are here to share in the One glory of the expression of the LORD on earth.

And here we know more of what the words actually mean, “And all the upright in heart shall glory.”
