I woke up this morning to the sound of rain, compliments of hurricane Dolly. It's a wonderful sound. I will check the news and see when and where landfall is expected. Pray for the people in her path, even though it's a small storm, flooding and tornadoes can be a problem.
As I listened to the rain, I was impressed to read Proverbs 9 over and over until I got up and read it. I will mediate on it more this morning before work. I definitely want to accept wisdom's invitation and decline folly's. Here are the 1st few verses from Pro 9:
1 Wisdom has built her house; she has hewn out its seven pillars.
2 She has prepared her meat and mixed her wine; she has also set her table.
3 She has sent out her maids, and she calls from the highest point of the city.
4 "Let all who are simple come in here!" she says to those who lack judgment.
5 "Come, eat my food and drink the wine I have mixed.
6 Leave your simple ways and you will live; walk in the way of understanding.
7 "Whoever corrects a mocker invites insult; whoever rebukes a wicked man incurs abuse.
8 Do not rebuke a mocker or he will hate you; rebuke a wise man and he will love you.
9 Instruct a wise man and he will be wiser still; teach a righteous man and he will add to his learning.
10 "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
11 For through me your days will be many, and years will be added to your life.
12 If you are wise, your wisdom will reward you; if you are a mocker, you alone will suffer."
