Solomon authored many wise words. And although he was straightforward and truthful, he never lost poetic touch.
Here he personifies wisdom as a woman.
Doesn’t Wisdom call out?
Doesn’t Understanding make her voice heard?
At the heights overlooking the road,
at the crossroads, she takes her stand.
She is certain, she is firm.
She stands for justice and truth of God.
She calls out... so that there is no excuse.
And we read that she has been beside the Lord since the beginning of time, a laborer in His creative process; a keeper of His wonders. She seems to be ever-present, always available and easy to find.
those who keep my ways are happy.
For the one who finds me finds life
and obtains favor from the Lord,
but the one who misses me harms himself;
all who hate me love death.
Let us not neglect listening.
Let us seek wisdom from the Lord.
For when we find her,
we receive happiness, favor and life.
from my heart...
I write as an overflow... an expression of my true love for God and with a deep desire to encourage others in their day to day lives. For we can only find peace, joy, and satisfaction when we yield to the One who yielded His life for us.
