voice of wisdom

wisdomtreeProverbs 1:20-33

Small children trust their parents’ wisdom.  What a shock when the teenager realizes Mom and Dad don’t know everything–even worse when the young adult begins to imagine they don’t know anything.

How often in our Christian walk do we imagine ourselves mature, and thus stop listening for wisdom’s voice? “Do you know how long I’ve been going to church?”  we might say to those who desire to share with us correction and guidance.  Listening to wisdom’s voice requires an open and humble spirit.  We are told in Proverbs that those “who choose not to fear the LORD” will be felled by “the waywardness of the simple…and the complacency of fools.” (v. 32, TNIV).  Ignoring the voice of wisdom has the consequence of leading us further and further from God’s truth.

Gracious God, let us never become so complacent in our own knowledge that we close our hearts and minds to your revelation. Amen.
