Invitation Accepted

In the Book of Proverbs, Chapter 9 verses 4 and 16, we find the same words from two very different women, “‘Let all who are simple come in here!’ she says to those who lack judgment.”  Both wisdom and folly are personified by the writer as females.  One offers instruction that leads to life, wisdom and understanding; the other offers temporary pleasures that lead to death.  It amazes me how many people choose the latter.   We are invited by both to participate in what they have to offer and the choice seems simple but many get it wrong.

It’s your choice, you don’t have to choose folly and get it wrong.  Instead you can choose wisdom, leave your simple ways and walk in the way of understanding, accept rebuke and instruction from others, fear the Lord, learn more about Him and enjoy many days and the rewards that come from wisdom.  God’s Word is truth and brings life.  He is our Creator and His instruction is for our benefit.

Thanks for reading and God bless you,
