This Sunday, we are invited to a banquet given by Wisdom as we find in our reading from Proverbs 9:1-6. Wisdom becomes personified in these words:
"Wisdom has built her house,
she has hewn her seven pillars.
She has sent out her servant-girls, she calls from the highest places in the town,
'You that are simple, turn in here!'
To those without sense she says,
'Come, eat my bread and drink of the wine I have mixed.
Lay aside immaturity and live,
and walk in the way of insight.'"
Wisdom might be the highest form of knowledge regarding how to live. You simply don't live foolishly. You come to make smart decisions. You don't necessarily think short-term, but long term. You do what matters for the kingdom of God. You seek wisdom from God.
There may be many sources for which we turn for wisdom. However, nothing compares to what we find in Scripture - particularly in the book of Proverbs. It is here that Solomon gives much practical advice on how to live God's kind of life.
I would encourage you to analyze your own life and see if you need to become wise in terms of what you are doing. You might want to begin reading the book of Proverbs to note what Solomon suggests.
May God's blessing be upon your study of thse words of Scripture and your worship this Sunday.
