Proverbs 9:1-6

Proverbs 9:1-6

Wisdom has prepared blessings for those who listen

In contrast to what folly prepares for its followers, wisdom offers far more to those who seek it.  Wisdom builds a house with strong pillars offering dependable shelter.  Wisdom prepares a banquet of meat and wine, setting a table waiting for us.

Wisdom not only prepares such a feast, but also calls out throughout the town for everyone to come.  Wisdom calls not just for the wealthy or powerful, but here calls for the simple and for those without sense.  Wisdom wants everyone to eat of her bread and drink of her wine.

Wisdom wants everyone who will listen to live and walk in “the way of insight”.

In a world where ideas are called truth just because the powerful and the influential say it to be so, wisdom offers the rock of real truth.  It offers a foundation on which to stand and satisfies those who seek it with real food. Don’t be deceived by folly’s temptations and miss out on wisdom’s great blessings.


Wisdom has built her house;
she has hewn her seven pillars.
She has slaughtered her beasts; she has mixed her wine;
she has also set her table.
She has sent out her young women to call
from the highest places in the town,
“Whoever is simple, let him turn in here!”
To him who lacks sense she says,
“Come, eat of my bread
and drink of the wine I have mixed.
Leave your simple ways, and live,
and walk in the way of insight.”
