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
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?
