Proverbs 9:1-6 Good News Translation (GNT)
Wisdom and Stupidity
9 Wisdom has built her house and made seven columns for it. 2 She has had an animal killed for a feast, mixed spices in the wine, and set the table. 3 She has sent her servant women to call out from the highest place in town: 4 “Come in, ignorant people!” And to the foolish she says, 5 “Come, eat my food and drink the wine that I have mixed. 6 Leave the company of ignorant people, and live. Follow the way of knowledge.”

David invites us in the Psalms to 'taste and see' that the Lord is good.  In Proverbs gaining wisdom is likened to attending a feast.  Jesus tells parables about inviting people to a feast but few of us ever respond to the generous invitation.


Lord help me to feast daily on the wisdom that you share.  Help me to receive wisdom through the Holy Spirit as you share it in scripture, in teachers and in wise counselors.  Open my heart and mind to your wisdom.
