A Matter of Life and Death

A Matter of Life and Death

Proverbs emphasizes the importance of seeking godly wisdom, stating flatly that this is a matter of life and death. Embracing His wisdom leads to life, not only for us but also for those around us. God is the source of life and all that is good. Only His wisdom leads to life. Yet we often find ourselves tempted to ignore God’s wisdom and trust in our own human understanding. Listen to the pleading voice of wisdom calling out for you to listen to her and walk in her ways. Where are you listening, watching, and waiting for God’s wisdom in your life and leadership?

Blessed are those who listen to me, watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway. For those who find me find life and receive favor from the Lord. But those who fail to find me harm themselves; all who hate me love death. —Proverbs 8:34-36

Prayer: Lord, I am listening, watching, and waiting for Your wisdom. Lead me forward in wisdom. In Jesus’ name, amen.
