Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Proverbs 9:1-6. Wisdom has built her house, she has carved out her seven pillars. She has killed her beasts; she has made her wine; she has also set her table.
She has sent out her maidens: she cries upon the highest places of the city. Once wisdom has prepared she spreads the word to let everyone know.
This reminds me of when I was young and mama would get dinner ready she would call out, “Dinner is ready” for everybody to come and enjoy the meal she had prepared. When she called us she wanted us to come right away. She didn’t want us to take our sweet easy time getting there.
Whoever is simple, let him turn in here. As for him who wants understanding, she says to him, come, eat of my bread, and drink of the wine which I have made.
Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding.
Ezekiel 11:20 That they may walk in my statutes, and keep mine ordinances, and do them: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God.
Notice that Lady Wisdom has prepared. She has made everything ready to receive her guests. When opportunity knocks wisdom is ready to answer the call.
One of the most important ways we can prepare ourselves for the future is to have a relationship with Jesus Christ. Without Him we are headed for death and destruction. With Jesus Christ as our Savior we can look forward His blessings in this life and the life to come.
Daily Bible Reading:
1 Wisdom hath builded her house, she hath hewn out her seven pillars:
2 She hath killed her beasts; she hath mingled her wine; she hath also furnished her table.
3 She hath sent forth her maidens: she crieth upon the highest places of the city,
4 Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither: as for him that wanteth understanding, she saith to him,
5 Come, eat of my bread, and drink of the wine which I have mingled.
6 Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding.
Things to think about:
- What do we learn about wisdom in this Scripture?
- What did Lady Wisdom do to prepare for her guests in this Scripture?
- Once Lady Wisdom was prepared what did she do next?
- For whom did Lady Wisdom call out?
Prayer of the day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank You for this Scripture in the book of Proverbs which shows us that those who are wise have prepared themselves. When opportunity knocks they are ready. Help us to be like Lady Wisdom and prepare ourselves not only now, but for our future with You. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
