The wise person
but whoever listens to me will live in safety and be at ease, without fear of harm.
In this passage, wisdom is described as a person that goes everywhere, including in the marketplace. He wants to freely give advice, knowledge and correction. As long as someone is willing to accept it, they will become wise. However, during a peaceful day, everyone declined wisdom and avoided being friends with him. Once calamities hit, they all became scared and did not know what to do. But when they searched for wisdom, he was gone!
Which three kinds of people does wisdom especially care for?
|＊People who exaggerate about themselves, enjoy ridiculing others, and do not listen to teaching|
|＊People who are confused and do not want to learn or change|
|＊People who are na ve and easily tricked|
If wisdom came to find you, what kind of advice would he give?
□ In order to be healthy, grow tall, and have a clear mind, you should not sleep too late
□ Wash your hands before meals and brush your teeth before bed
□ Finish your homework every day. Don’t procrastinate until Sunday night.
□ Don’t get addicted to your computer games. Learn to manage your time well.
What kind of person are you? In order to avoid being a foolish person, you must be willing to be friends with wise people and listen to the words of wisdom. This way we grow and change and become wise as well.
Dear Heavenly Father, Sometimes it is not an easy thing to follow wise advice, but it is a good thing that will help us. Please soften my heart and allow my ears to open towards wisdom so that I follow wise advice and receive peace in my heart. In Jesus’s name I pray, Amen!
