Proverbs 8

20-Proverbs_988  Praise of Wisdom
Proverbs 8:1 Doth not wisdom cry? And understanding put forth her voice?"
Proverbs 8:2 "She standeth in the top of high places, by the way in the places of the paths."
  Proverbs 8:3 "She crieth at the gates, at the entry of the city, at the coming in at the doors."
Proverbs 8:4 "Unto you, O men, I call; and my voice [is] to the sons of man."
Proverbs 8:5 O "ye simple, understand wisdom: and, ye fools, be ye of an understanding heart."
Proverbs 8:6 "Hear; for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips [shall be] right things."
Proverbs 8:7 "For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness [is] an abomination to my lips."
Proverbs 8:8 "All the words of my mouth [are] in righteousness; [there is] nothing froward or perverse in them."
We must want wisdom, and pray for it if we are to receive it. It is always there and always available.  
 Things of this world are not to be even compared with knowledge and wisdom of God.  The most valuable reality a young person can attain is the insight to order his life by the standard of truth.
Proverbs 8:17 "I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me."
Proverbs 8:18 "Riches and honour [are] with me; [yea], durable riches and righteousness."
Proverbs 8:19 "My fruit [is] better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver."
Proverbs 8:20 "I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment:"
Proverbs 8:21 "That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures."
Proverbs 8:22 "The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old."
Proverbs 8:23 "I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was."
Proverbs 8:24 "When [there were] no depths, I was brought forth; when [there were] no fountains abounding with water."
Proverbs 8:32 "Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed [are they that] keep my ways."
Proverbs 8:33 "Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not."
Proverbs 8:34 "Blessed [is] the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors."
Proverbs 8:35 "For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD."
Proverbs 8:36 "But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death."
The walk of a Christian is one day at a time. Our commitment to the Lord is for a lifetime, but we must live it one day at a time. God's instructions for living are found in the Bible. It is impossible to live pleasing lives in Him without knowing what His Word (Bible) says. Our prayer each day should be, "Lord, help me live pleasing to you today".
