I like how Proverbs gives wisdom a persona. Wisdom cries out and has some strong things to say. She speaks out against those who don’t listen to her words. I fear we see much of that in society today. Wisdom speaks shame on those who, “hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of the Lord.” We see a lot of fear, but I think very little fear of the Lord. I’m thankful God has given us His word so we can learn wisdom.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for giving wisdom. Please help us to fear You and seek after the wisdom You so freely give.
I pray this in Jesus’ name.
God is so good.
