PROVERBS 8 The Excellence of Wisdom
This chapter reads like a poem to me. Speaking of so many important values of Wisdom.
The study notes state that wisdom is portrayed as a woman who guides us, makes us succeed, was present at the time of creation and works with the Creator. That those who hate wisdom, love death. And wisdom should affect every aspect of one’s entire life.
Imagine if we could be a people where all the words of our mouths were with righteousness; nothing crooked or perverse be in them?
Wisdom says…I AM understanding, I have strength. Just as with the Lord, those who diligently seek wisdom will find her.
Wisdom was there from the beginning of time.
Pride and arrogance are the evil way. Love for God and love for sin cannot coexist. Throw evil ways away!
