Wisdom has built her house, she has hewn out her seven pillars;
She has prepared her food, she has mixed her wine;
She has also set her table;
She has sent out her maidens, she calls from the tops of the heights of the city:
“Whoever is naive, let him turn in here!”
To him who lacks understanding she says,
“Come, eat of my food and drink of the wine I have mixed.
Forsake your folly and live, and proceed in the way of understanding.” Proverbs 9:1-6
When we live according to God’s wisdom we accept His great invitation to life the way He intended. Its not always easy, but it brings with it blessings. The Bible promises anyone who lacks wisdom and asks for it, God will give liberally. That is His great invitation. In the end, it is life itself waiting for us… as we come to know Jesus Christ in a personal way. For He is God’s wisdom.
Have I accepted His invitation? Am I drinking and eating at God’s table?
Lord, today I ask again for wisdom to live this life, minister in Jesus’ name and love You in the way You desire. Since its a day of worship together, may You be blessed by our words, songs, and actions today.
