April SOAP: Which party to go to?
1. SCRIPTURES: Proverbs 9
- Both wisdom and foolishness personified as hosts sent out invitations to dine at their homes
- Wisdom gives those she invites life, insight and helps them to become wiser
- Foolishness instead turns what is wrong to right, corrupting the invitees and leading them to death
(v17: Stolen water is sweet; food eaten in secret is delicious)
- Our days are greatly enriched and prolonged in the application of God's wisdom for our lives
- Choose this day which way we would go - the house of wisdom or the den of foolishness
- The House of wisdom is found in the Bible, God's Word
Lord, may I accept the right invitation to feed on Your wisdom and not be wasted away in foolishness. Amen!
