The Way of Wisdom

If you reason with an arrogant cynic, you’ll get slapped in the face;
confront bad behavior and get a kick in the shins.
So don’t waste your time on a scoffer;
all you’ll get for your pains is abuse.
But if you correct those who care about life,
that’s different—they’ll love you for it!
Save your breath for the wise—they’ll be wiser for it;
tell good people what you know—they’ll profit from it.
Skilled living gets its start in the Fear-of-God,
insight into life from knowing a Holy God.
It’s through me, Lady Wisdom, that your life deepens,
and the years of your life ripen.
Live wisely and wisdom will permeate your life;
mock life and life will mock you.

Proverbs 9:7-12 MSG

  1. This way is a good way. Tried and true, ancient even, but hey, why mess with something that is tried and true?

    And proof it is good? Fresh fruit of course, pleasing in every conceivable way.

    1. haha… and amen!
      Indeed CS… well said…why mess with the tried & true…unless of course one hates good, fresh fruit…[unthinkable]
      … the way of wisdom is definitely the good way.

      1. And let’s not forget…the wisdom from above is FIRST pure………THEN peaceable………

        So it would appear that any who may have an issue with God’s wisdom, a self examination may be in order……… that pureness thing gets us every time 😉

        But eh, that’s ancient, what does God know…………

      1. lol…we’ve all been guilty of that…
        I just mentioned much the same thing on Pauline’s post:- she spoke about praying and asking for God to reveal terminologies and symbolisms in Revelation.

        I thought what a brilliant prayer… we have not because we just never think to ask such a thing of God.

        It’s wonderful just learning and sharing with everyone.
