Proverbs 8 - Wisdom's Call

LINK: Proverbs 8

BACKGROUND 

Wisdom, the woman, calls to all. This is a beautiful chapter. 

Note how wisdom is described:
Available to all (8:1-6, 32-35) 
Righteous and aligned with truth (8:8-9) 
Divine (8:22-31) 
Life-giving (8:35-36)
REFLECTION

The Scarlet Thread of Redemption

The description of wisdom is a description of Jesus who is wisdom incarnate:


In whom are hidden all the treasures 
of wisdom and knowledge.
(Colossians 2:3)

But by His doing you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption.
(1 Corinthians 1:30)

He is available to all, righteous, aligned with truth, divine, and life-giving! Substitute Jesus' name for wisdom and read this proverb again!

APPLICATION 

Make a list of all the blessings of wisdom and thank God today. Wisdom (Jesus) is calling You to fellowship with Him today. I pray You have a blessed day listening to His voice. 

PRAYER

Thank You that You sent wisdom in the form of a person, Jesus. Help us to live like Him. We pray this in His name. Amen.
