Proverbs 7-8, Acts 6
I love the passage in Proverbs as it shows wisdom being with God in the beginning, before creation, during creation, and then after. Wisdom states, I was with God before he created the face of the earth; I was there when he founded the earth and it’s form; I delight in the creation and the creation of man. So, it was wise of God to make us. We are pictures of His wisdom. That’s a really amazing thought! And, again, I love the picture of wisdom as standing in obvious places for us to see—that wisdom is not far but is very near. I’m reminded of the words in Jer. 29:12 or 13 (I think) when God says, “If you seek me, you will find me when you seek me with your whole heart.” Wisdom gives the same promise. She will be found by those who set their hearts to seek her. That’s a comforting thought, especially when we meet times in our lives when we just don’t know what to do. We have a promise…wisdom will be given!
Wisdom is so precious
32“And now, O sons, listen to me:
blessed are those who keep my ways. 33Hear instruction and be wise,
and do not neglect it. -ellie
I really appreciated how the woman of wisdom in proverbs is stated to be with God throughout creation. That even when we were created God used wisdom to create us. How cool is that?!
31rejoicing in his inhabited world
and delighting in the children of man.
