Proverbs 1

I’ll admit, I’ve never been big on Bible blogging.  I don’t have anything against it, I just don’t care for it.  That being said, I’m going to make an exception.  I started reading Proverbs recently.  I suppose I’m just excited about it because it’s been years since I’ve opened my Bible.  I love Proverbs because you don’t have to read far before you come to something that really strikes you.  For me, this happened just a few verses into the very first chapter.

For waywardness kills the simple,
and the complacency of fools
destroys them;
but those who listen to me will be
and will live at ease, without
dread of disaster.

–Proverbs 1:32-33

The “me” in the passage is actually not intended to be God, but rather, wisdom, whom in this case, appears as a woman.  Interesting.
