Proverbs 1:20-33

How I need wisdom! How I want wisdom!

In my family, in the church, on the Mission Board, on the School Board, in my business — in the last half year or so I have really, really struggled with knowing what I should do and what I should opine about some things.

Wisdom! That’s what I need and that’s what I want!

So the middle and last parts of this verse splash beside me like life preservers:

“Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you” (23).

What an offer! I’ll latch on to those promises like a drowning man to a couple of life preservers.

But what about the third life preserver — the first part of the verse?

I also want wisdom’s correction and reproof. I want to turn when wisdom tries to turn me.

I do not want to experience this:

“They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof” (30).

“Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices” (31).

[How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? (Proverbs 1:22)]
