Read Proverbs 9:1-6
9:1 Wisdom has built her house, she has hewn her seven pillars.
9:2 She has slaughtered her animals, she has mixed her wine, she has also set her table.
9:3 She has sent out her servant girls, she calls from the highest places in the town,
9:4 "You that are simple, turn in here!" To those without sense she says,
9:5 "Come, eat of my bread and drink of the wine I have mixed.
9:6 Lay aside immaturity, and live, and walk in the way of insight."
The book of Proverbs offers two competing invitations - the invitation of 'folly' and the invitation to 'wisdom'. In this picture wisdom invites you to her 'banquet' - an invitation to 'lay aside immaturity, and live, and walk in the way of insight'.
We often cling to immaturity - wanting easy answers and quick solutions.
Lord help me to lay aside immaturity, and live, and walk in the way of insight.
