“Does not wisdom call? Does not understanding raise her voice? … wisdom is better than jewels, and all that you may desire cannot compare with her.”
Proverbs 8:1, 11
Listening to those who’ve gone before, working hard despite distractions or dismay, reflecting on the past and practicing gratitude, and (most importantly) making space and time for prayer and scripture – pursuing wisdom is not easy. I have so much growing to go.
Proverbs 1-9 illustrates the disparate paths we can take in life through two personifications – Lady Wisdom and Lady Folly. May we choose to pursue and share wisdom.
