A Tidbit

I have to rush off and get going on school, but this was in my quiet time this morning:

“For whoever finds me find life, and obtains favor from the Lord; but he who sins against me wrongs his own soul; all those who hate me love death.”

Proverbs 8:35-36

This verse is referring to wisdom, which is the subject of this chapter (read it all…it’s good!).  One part stood out to me.  “…He who sins against me…” 

Wait—how do you sin against wisdom?

Well, I believe it means not utilizing wisdom when you should.  Not asking the Lord for it. Not searching His Word for it. And here’s the second part of the verse: “…[he who sins against me] wrongs his own soul.”  Aaack!!  I don’t want to wrong my soul!  (And I don’t want to find out what wronging does to your soul, either!)

Lord, keep Your wisdom and our endless need for it ever before my eyes.


  1. Good insight... I never thought of it as wronging wisdom. I thought of it as wronging God. Thanks for pointing that out to me.
