Trust. It was after midnight. My future mother-in-love and I were driving back from visiting my future hubby, who was in Navy boot camp outside Chicago. The day had been emotional and long making the drive back to St. Louis arduous.
Ah, my dear friends. We can’t avoid it. Here is one of the primary reasons why
we don’t simply study Proverbs and move on to our next study. It is because wisdom begins with the fear of the LORD. We can study the the definitions of what scholars tell us the fear of the LORD means, but because the fear of the ADONAI is intrinsically woven into our pursuit of wisdom, discernment, and knowledge, it is to be lived.
How many have a wise child? Not everyone, unfortunately. Hubby and I didn’t get the wisdom thing ourselves — even as believers — until our daughter was on her own. That meant the poor thing went through the same hard lessons we did. Even harder in some respects.
Who we hang around with does affect us. To walk with someone is a purposeful act of relationship. We spend time with them—we share their lives.
We’ve all felt it, that first sip of just-the-right-coolness water on a parched throat. That “ahhhh!” and gratitude for the miracle of water. Is it any wonder that water plays such an important role throughout Scriptures?
