Does not wisdom call? Does not understanding raise her voice? On the heights beside the way, at the crossroads she takes her stand; beside the gates in front of the town, at the entrance of the portals she cries aloud: (Proverbs 8:1-3, ESV) I love to go to baseball games. I'm not a big baseball fan, but I love the atmosphere, and most of all, the food. The vendors that wander the aisle of major stadiums are always great theatre as they weave through the crowd, hollering out, and literally pitching their product to the needy crowd. I can hear their cries of 'Peanuts!' But the one thing about these vendors is that they always seemed elusive. When I want peanuts, he's on the other baseline. When I want an ice cream, he's in the upper deck. They remind me of Solomon's description of wisdom. She is both obvious and elusive. She can be found calling out from the busy street corner. But she must be searched for like precious treasure. The question before us is - are we looking? This week, we are going to meet several of the characters of Proverbs. That's right, characters. Solomon helps us to understand wisdom and folly by personifying them. Check out chapter 8-9 for a preview. And come ready to find wisdom from God's word.
