THE BEGINNING OF WISDOM

Posted on by julie

Daily Prayer for May 4th, 2020  

Good Monday morning, God‚ÄĒthank you! ūüôā

Wisdom is greater than rubies. It is knowledge, sound mind, understanding, and forethought. Fear of you is the beginning of wisdom, but love from you is its completion. Fearfulness saves humankind from caving in to our sinful nature. You may pose a grim threat to my ego, as you cast me down, only to lift me again while rescuing me from deception, revealing the truth that sets me free. You sit in judgment of my sins but forgive me nevertheless. You are so amazing, God! In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Proverbs 9:10 NIV

10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,
and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

Job 28:27-28 ESV

27 then he saw it and declared it;
he established it, and searched it out.
28 And he said to man,
‚ÄėBehold,¬†the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom,
and to¬†turn away from evil is understanding.‚Äô‚ÄĚ

Proverbs 8:11-18 ESV

11 for wisdom is better than jewels,
and all that you may desire cannot compare with her.

12 “I, wisdom, dwell with prudence,
and I find knowledge and discretion.
13 The fear of the Lord is hatred of evil.
Pride and arrogance and the way of evil and perverted speech I hate.
14 I have counsel and sound wisdom;
I have insight; I have strength.
15 By me kings reign
and rulers decree what is just;
16 by me princes rule,
and nobles, all who govern justly.
17 I love those who love me,
and those who seek me diligently find me.
18 Riches and honor are with me,
enduring wealth and righteousness.
