Wisdom Speaks Out

Written by Boyd Bailey

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- May 30, 2012

“Does not wisdom call out? Does not understanding raise her voice? On the heights along the way, where the paths meet, she takes her stand…” Proverbs 8:1-2

Wisdom is not shy, but it proclaims itself and speaks out in public places. The Lord, speaking to Moses on Mt. Sinai, spoke wisdom loudly with authority, clarity, and finality. John the Baptist boldly cried out repentance and faith in Christ to the crowds. Wisdom is not a secret secluded in solitary confinement waiting to be let out. It calls out publicly and openly.Because wisdom is so easily accessible, it is imperative we listen and learn from its instruction. Sunday morning teachings at your church should be a reservoir of wisdom. If not, consider transferring to a fellowship where access to truth is easy to find. Wisdom drowns out the whispers of gossiping fools, because wisdom has the last word. Listen for wisdom and you will learn how to follow the Lord.“He proclaimed the kingdom of God and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ—with all boldness and without hindrance!” Acts 28:31

The way of wisdom works because it invites in God’s blessing. For example, financial wisdom is to avoid debt, save, and pay cash. Relational wisdom is listening with understanding to another’s needs, repeating back what you heard, confirming your comprehension, and if appropriate, offering ideas that may bring benefit. Parenting wisdom is finding couples whose children are upright, and learning from them. Business wisdom is building your enterprise on honesty and integrity, not compromising your convictions for cash.

Wisdom has worthy things to say, so listen for it each day and learn. Train your ears to listen for wisdom in sermons and everyday conversations. Expose your eyes to wisdom found in books and in the Bible. Lastly, look for wise behavior to emulate from those who enjoy the fruit of faithful living. Wisdom speaks out, so you can live it out.

“Wisdom shouts in the street, she lifts her voice in the square.” Proverbs 1:20

Prayer: Where is wisdom trying to get my attention, and how can I apply its truth?

    I do not agree with your statement of if you don’t like it, transfer… It is the responsibility of the flock to correct the Pastor/Minister if they feel that his teachings are not following the Word. When you teach that it is okay to just get up and move if you don’t like something how are people supposed to learn what true stewardship is? What their responsibility is? We as followers of Christ are held accountable and those in the leadership position even more so. We all need to be held accountable and if the flock just gets up and leaves the first time they don’t hear something they don’t like… well, how are we growing? or better yet, how are we teaching? Churches are planted for a reason, and that is to teach the Word of God. If that is not being done, then something needs to be done with the Pastor, not just leave him in position to teach something that might be false. Thank you and God bless,

    Richard, great point I agree with you, that the leaders and members of the church are responsible to hold their pastor accountable to Biblical teaching. Thanks for a great reminder.

    A servant for Jesus,

I am hoping anybody at targetdomain share some guidance 🙂 I considered that the most suitable way to accomplish this would be to talk to vape stores and cbd stores. I was hoping if someone could suggest a reliable site where I can purchase Vape Shop Business Sales Leads I am presently considering, and Unsure which one would be the very best choice and would appreciate any support on this. Or would it be easier for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?
