As Old As The Earth

We tend to know wisdom when we see or hear it.

From a grandmother.
An esteemed elder.
A good story.

In the book of Proverbs, wisdom is a feminine figure of divine discernment. She says:
The LORD created me at the beginning of His course,
As the first of his works of old.
Now sons and daughters, listen to me;
Happy are they who keep my ways.

Proverbs is an invitation, not to simple answers, but to seeking and listening to the way of wisdom. A way that’s as old as the earth.

  1. Where do you go when you’re looking for wisdom?
  2. In your opinion, what’s the difference between simple answers and listening to the way of wisdom?
