“Whoever wants to know me and receive my wisdom,
come and dine at my table and drink of my wine.
Lay aside your simple thoughts and leave your paths behind.
Agree with my ways, live in my truth,
and righteousness you will find.”
The Book of Proverbs is described as the Book of Wisdom. In our passage today, the psalmist points to the wisdom of seeking God and growing in our knowledge of his ways; wisdom is the ability to discern what is true, lasting, and right before God and then acting upon it. We were created to live by wisdom; therefore, Christ has been made Wisdom for us and we must follow his Spirit (1 Cor. 1:30). Wisdom is like a feast for our lives; knowledge and understanding in the ways of God. We feed our hearts on revelation-truth that transforms us. As we grow, we begin to operate our lives with wise strategies that lead us into God’s righteousness or holiness.
Prayer: Lord, as I continue to agree with your ways, I know I will grow in wisdom and Truth. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
