The banquet of wisdom calls everyone. From those who are currently struggling because of past choices to those who fear God and want to obey His Way.
Verse 10 of Proverbs 9 lays out a definition of wisdom and insight.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,
And knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. – Proverbs 9:10
The banquet of folly calls all who do not want to obey and had rather go their own way offering short term gain but ultimately resulting in eternal death. Folly leads to bad habits and destruction.
The beginning of wisdom is respecting God. Insight is gained from reading the Bible and from your own experiences so note the results of wisdom. Also, use the Bible and testimony from others to learn the consequences of rejecting wisdom’s call.
Take action daily to think and act upon increasing your wisdom with the understanding that wisdom will reward you. Ask for knowledge and wisdom and you will be blessed and others will be blessed because of you.
This day with You Lord, we pray for wisdom and knowledge. We do not accept the call of folly which can lead to things like drugs, alcohol, and despair but the call of wisdom which brings Your blessings. We accept what Jesus did for us on the Cross and we accept knowledge gained from Your Word as the stepping stones along the path to wisdom. Amen.
