Proverbs — Proverbs 1:20-27

Day 2260:  Today, wisdom is given a voice to speak to anyone who will listen. Today’s world demands that we be wise! Let’s all learn from Proverbs every day!

Proverbs:  Wisdom cries out in the streets; shouts to those in the public square; and speaks to those on busy streets and entrances to the city.  She cries, “You simple ones, how long will you continue your simple ways?  You scoffers, will you always continue your mockery?  You fools, will you hate knowledge forever?  If you listen to my reproof, I will pour out my heart to you and make wisdom known to you.  But you won’t listen and have rejected my pleadings.  You ignored my counsel and did not want my reproof.  When trouble comes, I will laugh.  I will mock you when calamity strikes and overtakes you like a storm; when disaster sweeps over you like a whirlwind; and when distress and trouble overwhelm you.”  Proverbs 1:20-27

Thoughts/questions: These verses indicate there are quite a few unwise people out there. And when you consider the premise of Proverbs – that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom – things become clear.

Those who reject the First Commandment – I am God; there is no other – are simple ones, scoffers, and fools in God’s eyes. Consider God, capital G, having mere man question and deny His very existence. No wonder when those who reject Him experience trouble, He laughs and mocks them in return for their laughing and mocking Him – the Almighty God.

May we all be seekers of wisdom and fear the Almighty!

Suggested prayer: Lord God Almighty, You are truly God, and I am not . . .
