Wisdom is fun!

Proverbs 8:20-31


I follow the course of righteousness

along the paths of justice,

21 to endow with wealth those who love me

and fill their treasuries.

22Adonai made me as the beginning of his way,

the first of his ancient works.

23 I was appointed before the world,

before the start, before the earth’s beginnings.

24 When I was brought forth, there were no ocean depths,

no springs brimming with water.

25 I was brought forth before the hills,

before the mountains had settled in place;

26 he had not yet made the earth, the fields,

or even the earth’s first grains of dust.

27 When he established the heavens, I was there.

When he drew the horizon’s circle on the deep,

28 when he set the skies above in place,

when the fountains of the deep poured forth,

29 when he prescribed boundaries for the sea,

so that its water would not transgress his command,

when he marked out the foundations of the earth,

30 I was with him as someone he could trust.

For me, every day was pure delight,

as I played in his presence all the time,.

31 playing everywhere on his earth,

and delighting to be with humankind.


Did you know that wisdom was created before anything else? Verse 22:


Adonai made me as the beginning of his way,

the first of his ancient works.


We can see as we read that wisdom was there from the beginning of time. Before the heavens were established, before the skies were set in place... The Words above should show us that God desires for us to understand HIS wisdom. It is all around us. It is placed in His creation. He created us, so that means it is in us.


The last two verses are the best ending to this section. I find them fun and playful.


I was with him as someone he could trust.

For me, every day was pure delight,

as I played in his presence all the time,.

playing everywhere on his earth,

and delighting to be with humankind.


Wisdom was with Him as someone, "He could trust..." Wisdom "played in His presence." Wisdom "delighted to be with humankind.


Reading those words makes me desire wisdom. If wisdom is playful and fun, than why wouldn't I want that?


I think too often we think that someone who is wise is old and not fun. These verses tell us otherwise. I think we should become more fun and more playful as we grow older. We should enjoy life and show those around us that we have HIS LIFE inside of us.


Friends, know today that HE created you and that because HE did that, YOU have wisdom! Than, find a way to enjoy that wisdom and share it with those around you. Let it bring delight to those you meet.


Love and blessings
