A note to the busy…….


Do you hear Lady Wisdom calling?

Can you hear Madame Insight raising her voice?

She’s taken her stand at First and Main,

at the busiest intersection.

Right in the city square

where the traffic is the thickest, she shouts,  Proverbs 8:1-3

 

This is a very interesting scripture. Interesting not because she makes a call but where she makes the call. She could of gone to any place and made the call to anyone but the scripture says,

 

“She has taken her stand at First and Main,

at the busiest intersection.

Right in the city square

where the traffic is the thickest, she shouts,

 

It’s so busy that she has to raise her voice. She actually has to shout to get the people’s attention! That got me to think. What were the people doing that she had to shout??? Were they really that busy? I started bringing up possible scenarios……

– A man had to get to the other part of town so he could deliver a package and get paid.

– A mom had to take her kids to school and was running late

– A young man had to meet someone who would fund his business

– A parent had to  rush to the hospital because his child was involved in an accident

– A family had to rush to the airport or they would miss their flight

and so on and so on………… Whatever the reason is for the busyness, they forgot about wisdom because she had to make the call. If they were operating in wisdom in their busyness wisdom would of kept silent but that was not the case.

Doesn’t that describe the kind of world we live in today? Everyone is just so busy today. Too busy to form real relationships. Too busy to stop and care for someone. Too busy to love. Too busy to stop and take time with their children. Too busy to stop and look at their lives and make changes. Too busy to stop and reflect.

Stop! Take some time to listen, someone pretty important is calling. And she is calling you! Will you heed her call or are you just too busy? It’s not wrong to be busy but when that busyness stops you from listening to the voice of wisdom then you have a problem. That is my challenge!

The call of wisdom.


THOUGHT OF THE DAY.

  “Are you confused about life, don’t know what’s going on?

   Come with me, oh come, have dinner with me!”

    It’s through me, Lady Wisdom, that your life deepens,   Proverbs 9                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      

What an amazing portion of scripture. Are you confused about your life??? Wisdom will help you.

Wisdom will bring clarity to your situation.

It’s through me that your life deepens” claims Wisdom. So deep, so profound!!

Come have dinner with me she says…….She wants you to understand what is happening in your life.

She wants you to have clarity about the confusion in your life.

She doesn’t want you living life confused and unsure. She want’s to give you understanding!

Cry out for wisdom. Don’t wait any longer.

Through wisdom, “the years of your life ripen“!

If that doesn’t get you excited I don’t what will!!!

Wisdom is amazing…….

Will you heed the call of Wisdom. She is waiting…..
