Wisdom is not the New Kid on the Block

Wisdom is not the New Kid on the Block 

Progress seems the thrill of the day.  The latest must be the greatest says contemporary society.  Yet, God says wisdom has existed from before the world itself began. Wisdom should be our joy rather than the newcomer called “progress”. 

We could simply breeze over the passage’s significance by simply linking wisdom’s work to the personification of Christ. We would then miss out on the profound reassurance that God provides in these verses.   

Refrain after refrain we hear that wisdom came first.  It came before all the works of creation. Not only did it come first, but it was the very fabric of how all was created and is now ordered.  It is more than the foundation, it exists in the very being of creation.   

Furthermore, this wisdom and its presence in all of creation pleased God.  We too should be pleased and rejoice in the wisdom of God woven into His creation.
