“Say hello to wisdom” Proverbs 8:12-21 (ICB)
Scripture for the day
Proverbs 8:1-21 International Children’s Bible (ICB) “Like a person, wisdom calls out to you. Understanding raises her voice. 2 On the hilltops along the road and at the crossroads, she stands calling. 3 She stands beside the city gates. At the entrances into the city, she calls out: 4 “People, I’m calling out to you. I am shouting to all people. 5 You who do not know better, get the ability to think. You who are foolish, get understanding. 6 Listen. I have important things to say. What I tell you is right. 7 What I say is true. I hate it when people speak evil. 8 Everything I say is honest. Nothing I say is crooked or false. 9 People with good sense know that what I say is true. People with knowledge know that my words are right. 10 Choose my teachings instead of silver. Choose knowledge rather than the finest gold. 11 Wisdom is more precious than rubies. Nothing you want is equal to it.
12 “I am wisdom, and I have the ability to think. I also have knowledge and good sense. 13 If you respect the Lord, you also will hate evil. It is wise to hate pride and bragging, evil ways and lies. 14 I have good sense and advice. I have understanding and power. 15 Kings use me to govern. And rulers use me to make fair laws. 16 Princes use me to lead. So do important men and all good judges. 17 I love those who love me. Those who want me find me. 18 Riches and honor are mine. So are wealth and lasting success. 19 What I give is better than the finest gold. What I give is better than pure silver. 20 I do what is right. I do what is fair. 21 I give wealth to those who love me. I fill them with treasures.
Thought for the day
Proverbs 19:8 (NRSV) “To get wisdom is to love oneself;” through Godly wisdom and understanding we establish a good strong family (home – Proverbs 24:3). Wisdom strengthens and protects the wise (Ecclesiastes 7:19); “the proof of wisdom is in the actions it produces” (Matthew 11:19 CJB). I encourage you to get wisdom and be blessed—Tim.
