HEARING WISDOM’S CALL
1: Does not wisdom call out? Does not understanding raise her voice?
8:1-36 Wisdom’s call is contrasted to the call of the adulteress in chapter 7. Wisdom is portrayed as a woman who guides us (8:1-13) and makes us succeed (8:14-21). Wisdom was present at the creation of the world and works with the Creator (8:22-31). God approves of those who listen to wisdom’s counsel (8:32-35). Those who hate wisdom love death (8:36). Wisdom should affect every aspect of one’s life, from beginning to end. Be sure to open all corners of your life to God’s direction and guidance. Tyndale. Life Application Study Bible NIV
How many of us REALLY understand wisdom?? How many of us use the wisdom we are offered?? The Bible says if we ask for wisdom, truly asked for wisdom it will be given. I have seen men that thought they were wise and I have seen true wise men, and a true man of God that has wisdom you rarely hear how wise he really is, where a man that thinks he is wise is often seen and heard acting foolishly. ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and gain wisdom and knowledge as we grow in maturity in Christ not in foolish ambition or arrogance of ourselves.
