Week 26 Thursday

A Good Sister

Today’s scripture selection: Proverbs 7

Key verse: Proverbs 7:4

I have one older brother. Growing up, there were times when we were very close to one another. And there were other times when we wanted to kill each other – at least metaphorically speaking.

I don’t suppose we were much different than most other siblings in the world. Sometimes the adage “can’t live with ‘em; can’t live without ‘em” really rings true.

But in Proverbs we learn about a couple of sisters we should all wish to have: wisdom and insight.

“Say to wisdom, ‘You are my sister,’ and to insight, ‘You are my relative.”

The counsel is nestled in a little warning about how to keep away from adulterous women.

But its advice is really universally applicable.

Keeping wisdom and insight close to home, just like a good sibling, is smart living in and of itself.

There are so many times when more than

  • Money
  • Power
  • Influence
  • Good looks
  • Great wit
  • Or any number of other attributes

what we could use more than anything is wise insight.

So – keep them close; value them; treat them like a beloved sibling. And one day, you will very glad indeed that you are such a “close family.”

Prayer: Lord, give me wisdom; give me insight, lest I wander down wrong paths alone. AMEN.
