Scripture: Proverbs 1:20-33
Observation: Proverbs is wisdom literature at its best (and briefest). The author is calling for wisdom but the people are stubborn and do not heed direction from the Lord.
"I called to you so often but you would not come to me."
Application: Wisdom is like parenting. I have 3 small children 4.5, 2.5 and 8 weeks. Attempting to tell any one of them anything that they will listen to is crazy. Say it, say it again, remind them what you just said....repeat. Ugh. Since becoming a parent, I have often said..."I can't imagine how God feels."
Prayer: Lord help us to heed your call for wisdom. Inspire us by your Holy Spirit to be in tune with what you might have us be.
