Good morning!

Text:  Isaiah 5-8; Proverbs 2

Proverbs is a marvelous collection of wisdom – precepts that work in life.

For the Lord gives wisdom;
    from his mouth come knowledge and understanding;
he stores up sound wisdom for the upright;
    he is a shield to those who walk in integrity,  (Proverbs 2:6-7)

The words of Proverbs are not rules, but rather instruction that tell us how life works, how to succeed and how to fail.   That’s what wisdom is.  And all wisdom comes from the Lord.   He gives us wisdom – both by experience and by speaking wisdom to us.  To gain wisdom by experience is the slow and painful route.  In the Book of Proverbs we have it ready for our use.  Each verse is to meditated upon, savored and mulled over.

in Him,  Mike
