Today’s Menu: WILL THOU TAKE THIS WOMAN?

wisdom

“Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; …forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: Love her, and she shall keep thee. Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting, get understanding. Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when you embrace her” (Prov. 4: 5-8)

During a wedding ceremony, the groom is asked “Will thou take this woman…?” and he must make a public declaration to seal their commitment to each other forever. Many grooms proudly say “I Will”.

In the book of Proverbs, wisdom (“the ability to discern or judge what is true, right, or lasting”) is likened to a woman who brings many benefits to all who embrace her.

We all need wisdom for life’s decisions: running a business, building a career, making money, deciding whom to marry, what course to study, which country to settle in, which relationships to keep, etc. True wisdom streams from above.

Do you want to live a successful life? If yes, ask God for wisdom today. Love her, embrace her, receive her and keep her for “length of days is in her right hand, and in her left hand riches and honour”(Prov.3:16)

Thought: Guide me O thou Great Jehovah; pilgrim through this barren land. Amen.

Have a great day.
