09.06.2017 – Old Testament: Pro 9.1
To read the Bible in a year, read Proverbs 9–10 on September 6, In the year of our Lord 2017
By Don Ruhl
He who has wisdom has everything. Wisdom itself is perfect and he who possesses it shall find perfection. As Solomon wrote,
Wisdom has built her house,
She has hewn out her seven pillars…
Many times in Scripture, the Lords uses seven to symbolize perfection (See my blog SevensInTheBible.com). Wisdom certainly has perfection and here King Solomon showed that by letting us see the house that wisdom builds, which has seven pillars.
Therefore, do everything you can to gain wisdom (Proverbs 4.7).
- Who do you consider the wise men and women in your life?
- How did they become wise?
