Day Fifteen

No Psalm 3:16
Proverbs 3:16 (ESV)
Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor.
The book of Proverbs is not a narrative work but rather a collection of insights of wisdom and advice. In this chapter wisdom is personified and is sought to be embraced. Wisdom is depicted as holding out her hands offering with the right hand long life, as the Hebrew says lengthy days, and with the left, precious things and honor.
John 3:16 paints an image for me of Christ extending his hands out on the cross offering to all who embrace Him in faith, eternal life, the most precious thing of forgiveness of our sins and a new kind of righteous honor through faith in Christ!
What does “embracing Christ in faith” look like to you?
How does the precious gift of forgiveness compare to other precious things in life? Why?
How is wisdom different than knowledge? Why is wisdom important in life?
Think about what living person has taught you wisdom. Take the time to send them a note of thanks and how their wisdom has influenced your life.
