”Wisdom cries out in the street; she utters her voice in the markets. She cries at the corner of the streets, in the openings of the gates; she speaks her words in the city, saying: ‘How long, you simple ones, will you love simplicity? For the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge. Turn at my reproof; surely I will pour out my spirit on you; I will make my words known to you.’” Proverbs 1:20-23
The wisdom of God is recorded in the Bible for all to read. It is preached in the streets and in public places for all to hear. It calls upon sinners to repent of their foolish and sinful ways and look to the LORD God for mercy. It asks people how long they will continue in their foolishness. And, it makes those who hear “wise unto salvation through the faith that is in Christ Jesus” (2 Tim. 3:15).
Grant that I hear Your Word and heed its message, O LORD, repenting of my sins and looking to You for mercy in the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
