[Each chapter in the Book of Proverbs contains thoughts that fit into a theme; they are not just random thoughts gathered together. In this “Saturday In The Proverbs” series, I will share a theme that I see in each chapter. But the cool thing about God’s Word is that you may see an entirely different theme. That’s great! If you do, I would love for you to share it in the comments below.]
Does not wisdom cry out…? (Proverbs 8:1).
The Apostle Paul tells us to take all our thoughts captive and filter out the thoughts that aren’t obedient to Christ (2 Corinthians 10:5). In other words, I need to eliminate the thoughts that are impure, false, vile, discouraging, unloving, proud, or un-praiseworthy (Philippians 4:8).
Wisdom herself says her words are:
- easy to understand
The rewards for really listening to Wisdom’s words are pretty great too:
- God’s blessings
- eternal life
- God’s favor
So with all that in mind, how would you answer the question now: Do you really want to hear what Wisdom has to say to you?
