Proverbs in 365 Devotions
Proverbs 8:12 “I, wisdom, dwell with prudence, and I find knowledge and discretion.
It Really Is All About
Who You Know
Continuing with her resume, Wisdom opens up to give us a background report on herself by telling us who she lives with and even runs around with.
You know, we tend to find a way to spend time with those we have the most in common with… at least in relation to those things that mean the most to us. For example, musicians hang out together, basketball players run in their same circles, cyclists ride in packs, and Trekkies congregate at sci-fi conventions all because of their common interests.
That's why Christians from all walks of life and with various incomes and social status meet together weekly for worship and fellowship. They share something in common that's important to them and that bridges every gap that all other shared interests in life cant.
If we have an interest… a yearning or desire… if we have a heart to seek for wisdom and find her, we will also have the opportunity to spend lots of time with prudence who will teach us to thoughtfully think ahead before we make rash decisions. We will also be introduced to knowledge which works well with Wisdom and Prudence. It will be our great honor to shake hands with Discretion who can teach us the art of knowing how and when to communicate truth, love and wisdom so that it will be honoring to God.
So... seek to know Wisdom. Her resume is open and honest and speaks for itself. She will introduce you to many others of great importance; because… it really is all about who you know.
That being said, I hope you have met Jesus who is better than everything.
Colossians 1:15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16 For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. 17 And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. 19 For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.
