A Polished Cornerstone #9


May 9th
In chapter 9 Wisdom (portrayed as a great lady) is calling to the simple and telling them that they can leave their simple ways and become wise. Another reminder that we have wisdom for the taking if we are in Christ. (James 1:5 “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.”)
It says in verse 8, do not reprove a scoffer or he will hate you. Reprove a wise man and he will love you.    If I am reproved which way do I respond? Do I love my re-prover and thank them for showing me the truth, or do I reject the reproof and hate the re-prover.  Here is my wise dealings list:

  • Be a wise man (women) and love my re-prover and heed their reproof
  • Fear the Lord, it is the beginning of wisdom
  • If I am wise years will be added to my life
  • Folly leads to death
