A few verses in this chapter explain why it is important to seek wisdom.
When I have wisdom in my heart, and when I enjoy aquiring knowledge, discretion will preserve me and understanding will keep me.
Wisdom will deliver me from these:
- the way of evil,
- people who speak perverse things,
- people who leave the paths of righteousness to walk in the ways of darkness,
- people who rejoice in doing evil,
- people whose ways are crooked and are devious
Thank you Lord God for the Holy Spirit who teaches me wisdom in your word.
