Today with so many social media and Internet dating sites, It's all about the "profile". Last night while browsing...... through the bible, lol, I came across an amazing one, so compelling, so gripping I couldn't turn away or help myself but share it. So many are looking for love, "In all the wrong places" as they say. But we tend to ignore the one who is right up under our nose and she calls out to everyone. The Great thing is, she is not shy or one who waits to be noticed. She eagerly gives her whole biography, her complete profile, but the last thing she is is arrogant, in fact she hates it. She loves those that love her and its unmentionable what happens to those that hate her. Cleaving to her is more beneficial, and even vital to our lives than anything else. To love her will build you up momentously, and she is the glory and splendor of kings. So who is Wisdom? She is everything. Listen for yourself:
“To you, O men, I
I raise my voice to all mankind.
You who are simple,
you who are foolish, gain understanding.
Listen, for I have
worthy things to say;
I open my lips to speak what is right.
My mouth speaks what
for my lips detest wickedness.
All the words of my
mouth are just;
none of them is crooked or perverse.
To the discerning all
of them are right;
they are faultless to those who have knowledge.
instruction instead of silver,
knowledge rather than choice gold,
for wisdom is more
precious than rubies,
and nothing you desire can compare with her.
“I, wisdom, dwell
together with prudence;
I possess knowledge and discretion.
To fear the Lord is to hate evil;
I hate pride and arrogance,
evil behavior and perverse speech.
Counsel and sound
judgment are mine;
I have understanding and power.
By me kings
and rulers make laws that are just;
all nobles who rule on earth.
I love those who
and those who seek me find me.
With me are riches
enduring wealth and prosperity.
My fruit is better
than fine gold;
what I yield surpasses choice silver.
I walk in the way
along the paths of justice,
bestowing wealth on
those who love me
and making their treasuries full.
“The Lord brought me forth as the first of his works,
before his deeds of old;
from the beginning, before the world began.
When there were no
oceans, I was given birth,
when there were no springs abounding with water;
mountains were settled in place,
before the hills, I was given birth,
before he made the
earth or its fields
or any of the dust of the world.
I was there when he
set the heavens in place,
when he marked out the horizon on the face of the deep,
when he established
the clouds above
and fixed securely the fountains of the deep,
when he gave the
sea its boundary
so the waters would not overstep his command,
and when he marked out the foundations of the earth.
Then I was the
craftsman at his side.
I was filled with delight day after day,
rejoicing always in his presence,
rejoicing in his
and delighting in mankind.
“Now then, my sons,
listen to me;
blessed are those who keep my ways.
Listen to my
instruction and be wise;
do not ignore it.
Blessed is the man
who listens to me,
watching daily at my doors,
waiting at my doorway.
For whoever finds
me finds life
and receives favor from the Lord.
But whoever fails
to find me harms himself;
all who hate me love death
