A Beautiful Passage

Below is the daily Bible reading I am doing for the West Side Church. Please feel free to follow along. If you would like a copy of the reading plan you can request one in the comment section. Please include your email.

I do not remember the last time I read today’s passage (Proverbs 8). When I sat down I was the only one in the church, my mind was going in ten different directions, so I chose to read out loud. As I did, the tone of the passage over took me. I felt like I was giving an amazing discourse. It was a beautiful passage that marked out the role Wisdom has had over the course of this world’s existence. Did you catch all the claims Wisdom made?

Wisdom speaks what is true
Wisdom’s words’ are just

Wisdom dwells together with prudence
Wisdom possess knowledge and discretion

Wisdom is what kings and rulers use to make their laws by and to govern by
Wisdom loves
Wisdom’s fruit is better than gold or silver
Wisdom walks in righteousness

Wisdom was created by God before all else
Wisdom blesses those who seek it out

This is the wisdom of God. So as we draw near to the end of the Wisdom passages in proverbs, ask yourself these question: Am I seeking out the Wisdom of God? Am I using God’s Wisdom to govern my life? Am I truly walking in the Wisdom of God? It is my hope and prayer that each one of us is.
