"MERRY CHRISTMAS!" (Did you receive that?)

Proverbs 1:20 (MSG)
Lady Wisdom goes out in the street and shouts.  At the town center she makes her speech.

When someone starts yelling, it always gets my attention!

We were at a baseball game this past summer.  It was a wonderful warm summer evening.  I was with my family when all of a sudden we could hear someone yelling in the section up above us.  We all turned and a hush fell over the crowd as the voice became louder.  Every word he was saying was loud and clear!  In today's verse, I think we are being told that wisdom is right there for the taking.  It's not a mystery or a secret formula....but you do have to receive it.  My prayer today is that not only will I hear His wisdom, but I will accept and apply it to my life!

  1. I'm so thankful the Lord abundantly provides us with everything we need. The key word is that He "provides". We have the responsibility to "receive".
