Proverbs 3:16-18


Proverbs 3:16-18 Long life is in her (wisdom’s) right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor. Her ways are pleasant ways, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to those who embrace her; those who lay hold of her will be blessed.


O Lord, grant me this wisdom for the “wisdom” that is in me is no wisdom at all, it is foolish. It seeks worldly pleasures; it feasts on the desires of the flesh; it believes my “wisdom” is just as good if not superior to yours. How foolish! Help me see this. Help me see the foolishness of my ways and the true wisdom of your will and ways. Lead me to your Word daily for the comfort of your forgiveness, for the strengthening of my faith, and for true wisdom that comes only from you. Then I will be able to live according to your wisdom and make decisions in my life that honor and glory you. In Jesus’ name, amen.
