Weekday devotionals for Christians

Are You Listening?

Pro 1:20  Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets:

Pro 1:21  She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words, saying,


Wisdom is actually begging us to listen to her.  It is hard to believe, but what is taking place is that what we really need is pursuing us.  Usually we pursue the things that are the most beneficial to us.  In this day and age that we live in, we are used to “scam artists” that are trying to trick us into to buying something that we do not need, want, or use.  Their sales pitch is so good, that we often do not even let them try their sales pitch on us for fear of being “taken for a fool”.  When I  spent 4 days in New York City with my wife on our anniversary, we were approached by MANY people to try to get us to buy something from them.  Only a few individuals did we actually buy something from (after I looked into it on my terms) and we were like that because we have been scammed before.

When it comes to Christ, wisdom, or Christ-like things; we don’t have to worry about being scammed.  God pursued us when we did not know our need:

Joh 6:44a  No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him:

Wisdom is now pursuing us, will you answer the call and allow her to make you wise?  The choice is really yours!
