Sunday – 1/11/15
Blessed the man, blessed the woman, who listens to me, awake and ready for me each morning, alert and responsive as I start my day’s work. When you find me, you find life, real life, to say nothing of GOD ’s good pleasure. But if you wrong me, you damage your very soul; when you reject me, you’re flirting with death. (Proverbs 8:32) Listening for Wisdom reminds me of when I once saw my neighbour, an old lady, walking home carrying two heavy shopping bags with her 2 dogs constantly jumping up and yapping at them.
I asked if I could carry the bags for her and on the way home queried if the contents was food for her dogs. No, she replied, it’s fish for me. I responded that I didn’t like fish very much and she responded, neither do I! Then why are you eating it I asked? Her response floored me: “I eat it because it’s good for me, not because I like it!” Listen up Child of God! Wisdom is crying out….! X
