Scripture : “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight.”
Observation : Proverbs 9 offers two different voices. One is the voice of wisdom, the Godly voice. The other is the voice of folly and of the world. The voice of folly is loud and seductive but the author of proverbs 9 urges the reader to not listen to it but focus on God’s voice.
Application : The only way to truly walk in wisdom is to be connected to God. To truly tune out the voice of folly I have to daily spend time close to God and in His word. Today, I want to live a life refleting the wisdom of God and not the folly of man.
Prayer : God thank you that you make wisdom known to me. Help me to increasingly walk in Your ways and not the ways of the world.
