“Does not wisdom call out? Does not understanding raise her voice? At the highest point along the way, where the paths meet, she takes her stand; beside the gate leading into the city, at the entrance, she cries aloud: “To you, O people, I call out; I raise my voice to all mankind.” Proverbs 8:1-4 NIV

The original world translated as wisdom in our theme scripture alludes to many different yet similar things.

One of them is shrewdness, which is the power to have good judgement, another is skill which is the know how that precedes taking on a given assignment, another is prudence which is a quality of being cautious especially in divine matters.

In our theme scripture, the writer points us to moments of our lives where it is extremely important to exercise shrewdness, skill and/ or prudence. Firstly, at the point of high places, which can be when you are promoted to a higher role or entrusted with greater responsibilities, when you move from being single to being married, when you enter parenthood having had no children — at every point of increase, it wisdom should be your friend.

It is required of you to exercise good judgement in choosing a spouse, wisdom in your increased responsibilities, prudence when dealing with another man’s business or stewarding children as gifts from God.

Wisdom is most important also at the beginning of things, major milestones in life, a great relationship that seems promising, a good business deal that guarantees to solve all your financial concerns, at such points, prudence is most demanded.

Child of God, it is written that wisdom shall be the stability of our time. Let it be said of you that wisdom and prudence were your guiding principle. Hallelujah!

Prayer: Father I thank you for this truth. I invest my heart and mind in gaining wisdom for its the beginning of the fear of God. You speak once and I hear twice and to all my getting you add understanding in Jesus name. Amen!
