Proverbs for doing Life

Call wisdom your relative!



Jan 2021

‘Say unto wisdom, Thou art my sister; and call understanding thy kinswoman: That they may keep thee from the strange woman, from the stranger which flattereth with her words.’ Proverbs 7:4-5

If you had a brother or sister, who was very successful and/or popular for the right reasons, you’d want everyone to know that they are your kin. It is the reason why you’d shout, that’s my brother/sister!“. For what reason, because you are proud of them! You would want everyone to know that you are related.

In a similar way, that our verses today enjoin us to call wisdom, and understanding, our sister and kinswoman, respectively. It is that closeness and sense of kinship, that delivers to you one of the rewards of wisdom. It is that closeness that protects from the evil one, the strange woman.

Father I heed this instruction today. I declare that You Jesus, are my wisdom. Jesus was of God, made wisdom to me. I am thankful that I belong to You. Thank You for the privilege of being in You. Hallelujah!
