All Who Are Willing: Experiencing the Wisdom of God through Proverbs

Chapter 9
Wisdom calls and invites all who will come to the table....a big spread is set before us. Wisdom doesn't care if we've messed up bids us to brush off failure and eat of its fruit. Wisdom looks over the city and in the towns....Wisdom sends its servants out to find all those who will come. Those who seem unlikely candidates are welcome. Leave past indiscretion behind and let Wisdom make things new.

Isn't that what we all need. Haven't we all had those times where we just messed up or we just didn't know what to do? God is the author of Wisdom and He is waiting for us to heed the call to allow Him to make all the difference in our everyday life and choices. Listen Wisdom says...let God Speak...don't just go your own Me.

Listen. What voice are you listening to? Who has your ear? The past several chapters have warned about not allowing the wrong voices speak to your heart. Wisdom beckons.

Proverbs 9:7-9
7 Anyone who rebukes a mocker will get an insult in return.
Anyone who corrects the wicked will get hurt.
8 So don’t bother correcting mockers;
they will only hate you.
But correct the wise,
and they will love you.
9 Instruct the wise,
and they will be even wiser.
Teach the righteous,
and they will learn even more.

  1. For who finds me, finds life and shall obtain the favor of the Lord. That is what I want and He tell us how to obtain...hear instruction and do not refuse it or rebel against it...hear Him daily.
