The voice of wisdom all around!

THE STORY OF JESUS: Proverbs 1-2
“Out in the open wisdom calls aloud…” (Proverbs 1:20)
The Creator has designed the universe with wisdom built right in.
There is a ‘common sense’ evident in life that anyone can see.
If people actually thought through their ways, they would see it.
But we tend not to think through our ways, we act on impulse or desire.
Wisdom tells us that all evil deeds eventually get exposed.
Wisdom tells us that violence, anger and unforgiveness do not help.
Wisdom tells us that selfishness, greed and lust lead to misery.
Wisdom tells us that cheating, lying, stealing come back to haunt us.
Wisdom calls aloud, yet so often we ignore or refuse it.
Wisdom is the Voice of Jesus – the Word of God – embedded in creation.
I believe everyone hears His Voice, urging us to change our ways!
Through Solomon’s sayings, Jesus is challenging us to think about our lives.
He is showing us the folly of human ways, and urging us to follow Him!
He is inviting us into His way of living, loving and leading in God’s world.
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
Lord, these opening words are challenging me to rethink my values, my priorities, my practices… am I being wise in how I’m living?

    The Father tells his son, me, on how to live – to do what is right and fair. My path needs to be straight, walking in His SonShine, the path of the righteous. My pilgrim’s progress must be in His light, listening to His voice, saying – this is the way. Walk in it – every good path.

    I am weak and I need Thy strength and power,
    To help me over my weakest hour.
    Let me through the darkness Thy face to see,
    Lead me, oh Lord lead me.

    Lead me, guide me along the way,
    For if you lead me I cannot stray.
    Lord, let me walk each day with Thee.
    Lead me, oh Lord lead me.

    Verse 2
    Help me tread in the paths of righteousness.
    Be my aid when Satan and sin oppress.
    I am putting all my trust in Thee:
    Lead me, oh Lord lead me.

    Verse 3
    I am lost if you take your hand from me,
    I am blind without Thy light to see.
    Lord just always let me thy servant be,
    Lead me, oh Lord lead me.
