Wisdom is Calling – Proverbs 1

“Wisdom calls aloud in the street, she raises her voice in the public squares; at the head of the noisy streets she cries out, in the gateways of the city she makes her speech…”

“…but whoever listens to me (wisdom) will live in safety and be at ease, without fear of harm.”

Proverbs 1: 20-21 and 33 NIV

These verses make me think of Wisdom being a matronly woman, perhaps dressed like the Statue of Liberty, calling to anyone who’ll listen to come and learn. This image contrasts with my misperception that wisdom is hard to find, or at least hard to acquire. She’s not hiding from me, she’s trying to get my attention. She’s working to give me what I seek, even to the point of yelling. That’s why I want to study a few verses from every chapter in Proverbs this month.

Wisdom will come to my mind if I just hang out with her. I’m going to listen and think hard on what I’m hearing. It’ll be so good!
