Consequence of Ignoring Wisdom

Wisdom cries aloud in the street, in the markets she raises her voice; at the head of the noisy streets she cries out; at the entrance of the city gates she speaks: - Proverbs 1:20–21 (ESV) There is no absence of voices in our world. If you want to fix a car or an appliance, you can call a repairman. If you want to tackle the job yourself, check Youtube for a tutorial. If you want to figure out what to invest in, call a financial advisor, or you can read a book, listen to a podcast, and even consult a 'robo-advisor'. Want to improve your people skills? Take an online course or go to meet-ups or try an app. There is no end to the voices for just about anything. The problem is what voices will ultimately not only help you, but tell you the truth? A company's self-interest, a profit motive, or a self-advancing perspective all taint people's advice and perspectives. How will we cut through the noise? In the midst of the crowded, loud marketplace one voice is calling. She is beckoning those that will listen. She is calling to those who want knowledge and understanding. She is Lady Wisdom. This week we continue to look at Proverbs 1, and we will see this feminine sage speak for the first time. The price to hear is admitting your own ignorance. That price is to high for some. How about you?
