Read Proverbs 9
As you read this chapter today, watch for these things…
- watch for how wisdom is calling
- watch for the contrast between wisdom and mockers when correction is given
- watch for how Folly is contrasted with Wisdom
The entire book of Proverbs encourages us to seek wisdom. But, in vv 11-12 in this chapter, we can see some tangible benefits to gaining wisdom.
Seek wisdom. Ask the Lord to give you wisdom. Think about how a wise person would respond in your situation. Above all, don’t go down the path of folly.
Fear of the Lord is the foundation of wisdom. Knowledge of the Holy One results in good judgment. -v10
