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
but those who listen to me will be
and will live at ease, without
dread of disaster.
The “me” in the passage is actually not intended to be God, but rather, wisdom, whom in this case, appears as a woman. Interesting.
