Proverbs in 365 Devotions
Proverbs 8:6 Hear, for I will speak noble things, and from my lips will come what is right,
Today Wisdom says she speaks all things right and pure and true. This is godly Wisdom… Wisdom in relationship to her sisters and intimate friends… We’ve mentioned them before in the allegory Solomon has projected.

If you have ever met Wisdom, you know she will not lead you in making good and proper decisions only 50% of the time, (definitely not!) she will not lead you down the right paths in everyday into forming good relationships and resolutions… to peace and contentment, strength of character and inward joy only part of the time… and she will not be honest and forthright with us 99% of the time; but rather 100%! We can be certain that her words will always be outstanding, accurate and trustworthy to hear.
Truth is not muddled, diluted or confused. One may possibly concur that their spouse is correct 99% of the time (at least in public); that they're favorite weather forecaster may claim to be right 60% (doubtful); you may think 25% of your Facebook friends will post likes to your last status on Facebook (not gonna happen); but Gods wisdom is trustworthy 100% of the time. Gods word has never failed anyone at any time and never will.

John said he is the word: John 1:14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.
Of himself Jesus said in John 14:6 “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
