Proverbs 8:5-7 O ye simple, understand wisdom: and, ye fools, be ye of an understanding heart. Hear; for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips shall be right things. For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness is an abomination to my lips.
Have you ever lost something, anything? It doesn’t have to be something big. In fact, the smaller the item, the harder it seems it is for us to find it. You search everywhere. First, you look in the obvious places. Then you begin to search in weird places. You start looking for things like keys in the cookie jar, or in the refrigerator. Like you somehow lost your mind and decided to chill the car keys. (OK, for those of you who went to the fridge to get something, did lay your keys in there, and forgot, I’m sorry, I did not mean to say you lost your mind.)
The next thing we all do, is we begin to blame everyone else in the house for our lost item. The kids, the wife, and the friends you had over last night. Someone must have mistakenly taken them. Next we blame everyone who even walked past the house. Maybe the mail carrier took the keys. Finally, you ask the dog. What did you do with my keys?
Guess where you’ll find your lost item? You know don’t you. Usually it’s right where you left it.
So where do you think you might find out about real truth, real knowledge, and real wisdom? You’ll find it exactly where it has always been from the beginning, in the pages of God’s Word. Who can find it? Anyone who will look for it, can find it.
It calls to the simple ones, the young, begging them not to make foolish mistakes in their lives. It calls to those of us who foolishly thought that at one time we knew everything about life, when we really knew nothing at all. Truth, knowledge, and wisdom, have always been in the same place, in God’s Word.
Life began by the wisdom of God. Life is sustained by the wisdom of God. Eternal life was designed, and delivered by the wisdom of God. It only makes sense then to live by the same wisdom. Seek the wisdom of God so He may bless your life.
