Do we trust one another as brothers and sisters of our Heavenly Father to be challenged to a deeper understanding of God’s truth?
I love the imagery of how this verse was translated. “Spreads out her palms…” “Extends her hands…” The picture I see is of a woman offering an embrace — a hug.
I like simple. Simple is okay — sometimes it’s even great. But there are times when our Heavenly Father wants me to look closer. Looking past the surface to see what He sees.
What a vivid picture this provokes. A bird that flies too far from the safety of its home leaves itself vulnerable …
Any type of fear is a trap, but the fear of man is particularly tricky. It can disguise itself as a form of respect or responsibility. Or the fear of offending others with truth.
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.
There is no Wisdom — true Wisdom — without the LORD. He is the source, because He is the Creator of the Universe.
