Proverbs 8

Proverbs 8

This mornings proverb is from chapter 8.
“Does not wisdom call? Does not understanding raise her voice?
Take my instruction instead of silver, and knowledge rather than choice gold,
The fear of the Lord is hatred of evil. Pride and arrogance and the way of evil and perverted speech I hate.
I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently find me.
My fruit is better than gold, even fine gold, and my yield than choice silver.
“And now, O sons, listen to me: blessed are those who keep my ways. Hear instruction and be wise, and do not neglect it.
For whoever finds me finds life and obtains favor from the Lord,”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭8:1, 10, 13, 17, 19, 32-33, 35‬ ‭
True wisdom consists in knowing God. “Thus saith the Lord, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches; but let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth Me, that I am the Lord which exercise lovingkindness, judgment and righteousness, in the earth; for in these things I delight, saith the Lord.” Jeremiah 9:23, 24. To know God is the sum of all scientific knowledge for Christ, who is the only manifestation of God, is the Source of all creation. Christ is the righteousness of God. Righteousness is the character of God. Therefore no one can know God without knowing His righteousness; and so the study of true science reveals the righteousness of God. And this is wisdom, for “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge.” Proverbs 1:7. The knowledge of the righteousness of God is connected with the knowledge of the works of God that we see with our eyes; for the Gospel is the power of God unto salvation, and the power of God is seen in the things that are made. Romans 1:16, 20. These scriptures mean not only the wisdom and knowledge which would be counted as such by men, but also “all wisdom and spiritual understanding.” These are not only in this world but is the core of life the Spiritual truth for the entire universe. “Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.”
‭‭1 John‬ ‭4:7-8‬ ‭Have an amazing day
