I’m visiting with my kids and grandkids this week and next, so instead of a Bible study, I’m sharing scripture I pray God will use to speak to those who stop by. Be blessed, and I’ll be back with another Bible study on Wednesday, August 15.
My son, if you will receive my words, and treasure my commandments within you, make your ear attentive to wisdom, incline your heart to understanding; For if you cry for discernment, lift your voice for understanding; If you seek her as silver and search for her as for hidden treasures; THEN you will discern the fear of the Lord and discover the knowledge of God. For the Lord gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding. He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk in integrity. For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will be pleasing to your soul; Discretion will guard you, understanding will watch over you. Proverbs 2:1-7; 10-11
Does not wisdom call, and understanding lift up her voice? On top of the heights beside the way, where the paths meet, she takes her stand; beside the gates, at the opening to the city, at the entrance of the doors, she cries out: “All the utterances of my mouth are in righteousness; There is nothing crooked or perverted in them. They are all straightforward to him who understands, and right to those who find knowledge. Take my instruction and not silver, and knowledge rather than choicest gold. For wisdom is better than jewels; and all desirable things cannot compare to her. I, wisdom, dwell with prudence, and I find knowledge and discretion. The fear of the Lord is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way and the perverted mouth, I hate. Counsel is mine and sound wisdom; I am understanding, power is mine. I love those who love me; And those who diligently seek me will find me.” Proverbs 8:1-3, 8-14, 17
Now at my bungalow retreat, where I depict country living, bungalow-style through words and pictures: Blessings
