Wisdom and understanding are words that can be looked at from many different angles. In Proverbs wisdom is often referred to as the figure of Woman Wisdom. Some scholars believe that this wisdom refers to Proverbs’ teaching being done in the form of a woman who reaches out to humankind. The book of Proverbs has many wise saying, some that may confuse as well as help us. However, I would encourage those who are open to it, to read and reflect on them, to have a better understanding.
No matter if you are building a house, a family, a business, a career, or anything else, these words can indeed provide wisdom and understanding for the process. Some of the more challenging issues in our life can be better handled when looked at through the lens of scripture. Vernon T.
