Proverbs 1:20-21a
Wisdom sings in the streets;
She moves boldly in the squares.
She preaches on high city walls
And sits at the gates of lords.

Encouraging Words

Wisdom in the book of Proverbs is a reference to our Lord Jesus Christ. This was taught by the early church fathers and continues to be taught through to today. It is a powerful exercise to read through the proverbs substituting Jesus for Wisdom. When this is done, it becomes very clear that Jesus is our only source of true knowledge and wisdom and that without Him being the Lord and Master of our lives that it does not matter how much education or information that we have accumulated. Wisdom, Jesus, is a person that we can enter into a relationship with. He is someone that we trust and respect. He is someone that we can turn to in times of need or in times of abundance. He is our guide and protector through this journey of life. He is also the one that is singing out in the streets, moving boldly throughout the city squares, preaching from the city walls, and sitting at the gates of the city, trying to call in the lost sheep into His loving arms. Glory be to God.
