“Words of Wisdom”—a daily dose of “words to the wise”–Day 3

With the dawning of a new day, I begin by reflecting on wisdom, asking, "Where do I begin?"

With the dawning of a new day, I begin by reflecting on wisdom, asking, “Where do I begin?”

“This is the day that the Lord has made. . .” and I am rejoicing and celebrating His goodness, as I begin my day by reflecting upon wisdom, as I read from the Book of Proverbs once again. Here is another blog entry, a poem, a “Word of Wisdom–a daily dose of words to the wise poetically expressed from the Book of Proverbs.” Today I am once again thinking about wisdom and asking, “Where do I begin?”

The Beginning of Wisdom

The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever.

Psalm 19:9

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom:

And knowledge of the holy is

understanding                                       

Proverbs 9:10

 

I begin and stand in absolute awe of You,

Thoroughly washed in the fountain of holiness.

The old has passed away—Behold, You make all things new:

Redeemed and justified by Christ, my righteousness.

As You search the earth, may I find grace in your sight.

I seek to be wise but never in my own eyes.

Here stands a perfect man, one destined to walk upright,

A beloved son, whose heart Your Word purifies.

I am filled with knowledge and wisdom from above

And bound by a covenant no one can sever,

For nothing can separate me from God’s love:

The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever.

I am renewed in strength and upheld by God’s Word,

As I pursue wisdom, growing in the fear of the Lord.
