Before we embark on our journey into the depths of life and mine for wisdom, I wanted to give you a bit of an intro, welcome you to the tour…sort of like your ‘tour guide’, and show you the beauty of wisdom.
I find it intriguing how in my early years of following Jesus I naturally assumed a passive posture when it came to living like a Christian. It was like I was waiting for God to change me by zapping me or something. But over time I have come to learn the value of taking responsibility for the person I desire to be, which I think is the person that God desires, too. I believe that deep within each of us lies the dormant seed of wisdom, and if we’ll water and nurture that seed it will produce for us a rich life.
Those necessary nutrients are found in the book of Proverbs. This little book smack-dab in the middle of the Bible contains…proverbs! Short pithy sayings of concentrated wisdom. It was written by King Solomon, perhaps one of the wisest world leaders humanity has seen. I’m fascinated that Solomon took the time to not only ponder the vastness of wisdom, but to also write it down.
So plant yourself in the Ground of all Being and let yourself be nurtured by these nutrient-rich nuggets! Welcome to the tour.
