Proverbs 8: 1-7 The Message
Do you hear Lady Wisdom calling?
Can you hear Madame Insight raising her voice?
She’s taken her stand at First and Main,
at the busiest intersection.
Right in the city square
where the traffic is thickest, she shouts,
“You—I’m talking to all of you,
everyone out here on the streets!
Listen, you idiots—learn good sense!
You blockheads—shape up!
Don’t miss a word of this—I’m telling you how to live well,
I’m telling you how to live at your best.
Do you ever feel like someone is shouting at you? I do.
Sometimes it’s my mom. Sometimes it’s my boss. But this time, it is Lady Wisdom.
She is trying to get my attention. She is trying to remind me that I am not listening to her.
Will I listen? Will you?
