Many times we sacrifice the wisdom of the Word because of pride, lust or selfish desires. We allow our flesh to daydream rather than think upon the Word day and night and allowing it to be transferred into wisdom as did the psalmist (2). We allow so many things to be exalted and take precedence over the Word of God, we need to have Job’s attitude, “I have esteemed the Words of His mouth more than my necessary food” (Job 23:12).
Wisdom cries out, but it is often met with a lack of consistent concentration. We do not study how it can have first place in our lives. We do not watch our words or weigh them in time, nor do we realize they have eternal value. Wisdom wants to guide people because wrong decisions destroy the soul (3).
Let us tune our ear to the cry of wisdom. She tells us, “I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.” Let us listen so that we may follow “the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment” (Proverbs 8:20). Let us seek wisdom: “Whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favor of the Lord” (Proverbs 8:35).
