  • 1 Does not wisdom call? Does not understanding raise her voice?
    2 On the heights beside the way, at the crossroads she takes her stand;
    3 beside the gates in front of the town, at the entrance of the portals she cries aloud:
    4 "To you, O men, I call, and my cry is to the children of man.
    5 O simple ones, learn prudence; O fools, learn sense.
    6 Hear, for I will speak noble things, and from my lips will come what is right,
    7 for my mouth will utter truth; wickedness is an abomination to my lips.
    8 All the words of my mouth are righteous; there is nothing twisted or crooked in them.
    9 They are all straight to him who understands, and right to those who find knowledge.
    10 Take my instruction instead of silver, and knowledge rather than choice gold,
    11 for wisdom is better than jewels, and all that you may desire cannot compare with her.
    12 "I, wisdom, dwell with prudence, and I find knowledge and discretion.
    13 The fear of the LORD is hatred of evil. Pride and arrogance and the way of evil and perverted speech I hate.
    14 I have counsel and sound wisdom; I have insight; I have strength.
    15 By me kings reign, and rulers decree what is just;
    16 by me princes rule, and nobles, all who govern justly.
    17 I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently find me.
    18 Riches and honor are with me, enduring wealth and righteousness.
    19 My fruit is better than gold, even fine gold, and my yield than choice silver.
    20 I walk in the way of righteousness, in the paths of justice,
    21 granting an inheritance to those who love me, and filling their treasuries.

    2021-05-15   If the woman of folly was calling out in Proverbs 7, the woman of wisdom now speaks to people in chapter 8. Let us explore the reasons to listen to wisdom.

이해하기(Understanding)
The woman of wisdom calls out to many people. She does not speak secretly, but she raises her voice in the streets, the junctions, at the gate, and at the entrance. The gate of the temple is a special place where important things happen, and the fact that wisdom speaks there emphasizes that she is the standard for that era and culture. Wisdom speaks the truth and hates evil. It does not waver to one side or the other but always presents the right way. It leads to a righteous and bountiful life. Wisdom is more important and valuable than gold or silver because a heart that is filled with wisdom will grow and live a life that is closer to God (vv. 1-11).
Prudence, knowledge, and discretion are friends of wisdom. Those who listen to wisdom will hate words that exalt themselves, for they will only exalt God. Wisdom teaches leaders how to use their power and authority and aids in being the salt and light in all situations. Seeking possessions will only fill the pocket, while seeking wisdom will lead to having a fruitful life on top of having possessions (vv. 12-21).

적용하기(Applying)
Who is God?
God gives wisdom to those who seek it. Wisdom is not difficult to find nor is it only given to a special group of people. God gives the gift of wisdom to those who seek wisdom. What do I need to do to hear the teachings of wisdom and to gain it?

What is the lesson for me (us)?
Those who study without wisdom easily become proud. They can use questionable methods to gain good results and seek a life of satisfying their own comfort and prosperity. However, a wise person will help his neighbor and honor God. Living with wisdom will lead to a more fruitful and satisfying life.


기도하기(Praying)
Help me to listen to wisdom today and to live a full and fruitful day.
