S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
Say to wisdom, “You are my sister,” and to insight, “You are my relative.”
In this chapter, Solomon speaks to his son and all of us males about staying away from the wayward, seductive woman known as the Prostitute. He said that more than ever, it’s important to be so close to Wisdom that we would address Wisdom as our sister and Insight as our relative.
We could flip this around to the seductive PLAYER male, who like the devil himself walks about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may prey upon like the predator he is. I don’t think Solomon meant this as a one-way street. This problem and this temptation cut both ways. But how can both male and female bless the Lord by staying free from such temptation? “Here’s To WISDOM And INSIGHT.” Solomon warned us all to literally come into a family relationship with these character qualities known as WISDOM and INSIGHT. When a person possesses INSIGHT, that person is able to see clearly through a challenge. By that, I mean all the layers of issues are quickly exposed to the person with INSIGHT. When that same person is blessed with WISDOM, he or she will know quickly what to do with the INSIGHT they’ve been granted. So when it comes to sexual temptation, here’s to WISDOM, your new sister, and INSIGHT, your new relative.
Thank You for my relatives, wisdom and insight. These family members have saved me more than once from complete destruction. I’m glad You knew what I needed. Amen
