Welcome to another edition of Blogging Through the Bible! This is my sharing from Proverbs chapter 8, and you can catch more from this wonderful series here:
Words From the Wheel by Staceylynn Wells
No Longer Lukewarm By Angela G.
As I read Proverbs 8, a couple of vague thoughts or questions swirled around in my mind. Is the personification of wisdom in this chapter in any way referencing to Christ or the three in one triune God (the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit), having been from the beginning and being found when sought, and bringing blessing and favor. If no specific or purposeful double meaning built into this passage, to say the least, these themes are COMMON between Christ and wisdom:
~to be highly valued
~from the beginning of humanity or before...
~ available to those who seek and honor...
~imparts reward or favor
What a wonderful life lesson to teach children, or for self to learn: There is high value in WISDOM and instruction!!
What strikes YOU most about this chapter? Are there people, or little children in your life that you should talk about the value of wisdom to? Does your life model respect and pursuit of wisdom from God?
Please grow an increasing hunger in me for Your word, Your wisdom. Help me to be a good example of one who pursues and respects Your wisdom, and instruction of good counselors whom You approve of. Give me discernment. Use me to promote wisdom I pray. In Jesus's name I pray, AMEN
