Lady Wisdom’s invitation has no fine print, no trappings, and no strings attached.  To accept her invitation is to accept a rewarding, fulfilling and enjoyable life.  Her table is spread, her feast is prepared, her party is ready, and the question is: will you accept the invite?  Now, let me be clear.  Accepting Christ as your Lord, becoming a Kingdom citizen, and deciding to walk with God all the days of your life does not mean that you will not face challenges.  However, what it does mean is that you will not have to face the challenges alone.  God will be in you, on you, with you, and for you every step of the way.  With God on your side you can experience guiltless victory and success.  When you succeed God’s way – a way free of corruption, lies, deceit and backbiting to get ahead – you gain the added benefit of being able to live free of regret, resentment and shame. But just as it led Adam and Eve to destruction, so We see in this Scripture the In fact, the invitation is to whosoever Greater Is Coming (Pt.18) Agreeing With Heaven.

Greater Is Coming (Pt.20) This is YOUR Moment! When I read this passage I thought of a book I read some time ago entitled, “On Being a Servant of God,” by Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe.  Dr. Wiersbe has been a Pastor/Teacher for over 50 years and has written over 100 books.  In the aforementioned book he took the time to share conversations that he would like to have with young preachers.  It’s like he thought, “Well, what advice could I give to a young preacher today?  What would I tell a young man if he came and sat in my office?”  And that is what he put in the book.  I can tell you that the book is awesome.  Although I could not gain access to Dr. Wiersbe and his experience for one-on-one counseling sessions, the book provided me lessons and insight that I still apply today.  That’s what this passage is like.  You and I can’t (physically) sit down with Lady Wisdom, but here she takes the time to tell us what she would tell us if we could.  These are life-lessons and if applied, they will help us to not only maximize our potential, but also to enjoy life as we live out our purpose.

Sometimes their guilt becomes so great, Proverbs 27:17 (ESV) These seven lessons are a reminder for me each day to live a life that makes a difference. Lady wisdom invites two categories of people into her home in this text: the ignorant and the foolish.  Some people are truly ignorant and when they learn about God, the truth about Jesus, and the eternal consequences of their decisions they turn to God, accept His Son, and begin their true life’s journey.  But then others know better, they just fail to do better; these are not ignorant, they are foolish.  They know what they should be doing, they know the eternal consequences of their decisions, they often even know what God wants them to do, but the cares and desires of this world keep them confined within the halls of childish bliss. The over-all lesson of the Book of Proverbs is that wisdom comes from God’s Holy Spirit.

This morning we continue our series, “Unlocking the Power of Proverbs – Walking in the Wisdom of God,” by continuing our counseling/mentoring session with Lady Wisdom.  She shares two golden nuggets in this text that are worthy of further examination: 1.  If you really want to become wise, you must begin by having respect for the LORD:  Solomon’s point here is that true wisdom is birthed in the heart, not the head.  Head knowledge alone is limited, but when head knowledge is fed from heart knowledge, it becomes supernatural.  Reverencing the Lord, spending time with Him, and acknowledging His omniscience opens you up to His infinite insight.  If you really want wisdom, you must pursue it from Jehovah. Consider its ways and be wise! 2.  Correcting the right people helps all parties involved:  If you correct the wise, not only will they get wiser, but they will respect you for caring enough about them to correct them.  Your correction of them will help them to make the course corrections they need to make, to stay on the path God wants them to take.  Additionally, they will have an elevated opinion of you, because you were the tool God used to provide the correction they needed.
