This Week's Bible Topic
We can choose to seek wisdom. In doing so we embark on an arduous and
fulfilling journey, though one without guarantees of obtaining that for
which we seek. Yet in the seeking we come close to God.
Bible Verses for this week:
Wisdom has built her house, she has hewn her seven pillars. 2She
has slaughtered her animals, she has mixed her wine, she has also set her
table. 3She has sent out her servant-girls, she calls from the
highest places in the town, 4"You that are simple, turn in
here!" To those without sense she says, 5"Come, eat of my bread
and drink of the wine I have mixed. 6Lay aside immaturity, and
live, and walk in the way of insight."
Be careful then how you live, not as unwise people but as wise,16making the most of the time, because the days are evil. 17So do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord
is. 18Do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery; but be
filled with the Spirit, 19as you sing psalms and hymns and
spiritual songs among yourselves, singing and making melody to the Lord in
your hearts, 20giving thanks to God the Father at all times and
for everything in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
