Proverbs 2:1-6

My son, if you receive the words of my commandment
And hide them within yourself,
Your ear will be obedient to wisdom,
And you will incline your heart to understanding;
You will entrust it to your son as an admonition.
For if he calls upon wisdom,
And you utter your voice for understanding;
If you seek perception with a strong voice,
If you seek her as silver
And search for her as treasure,
Then you will understand the fear of the Lord
And find the knowledge of God.
For the Lord gives wisdom,
And from His face come knowledge and understanding;

Encouraging Words...

I love how the early church fathers taught that when the Psalms and Proverbs speak about Wisdom they are talking about Jesus Christ. Reading through passages like this one with this understanding make the test jump off of the page. Try this passage knowing that it is pointing to Christ as the Wisdom of god and cherish the truth that the Lord gives wisdom, and from His face come knowledge and understanding.
