THE BEGINNING OF WISDOMMay 4, 2020
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‚Äô 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
11¬†for wisdom is better than jewels,
and¬†all that you may desire cannot compare with her.
12¬†‚ÄúI, 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.
