Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets: she crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words, saying, How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge? Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you. Proverbs 1:20-23
The wisdom of God is recorded in the Bible for all to read. It is preached in the streets and in public places for all to hear. It calls upon sinners to repent of their foolish and sinful ways and look to the LORD God for mercy. It asks people how long they will continue in their foolishness. It makes those who hear “wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus” (2 Tim. 3:15).
Grant that I hear Your Word and heed its message, O LORD, repenting of my sins and looking to You for mercy in the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
