Wisdom calls aloud outside;
She raises her voice in the open squares.
She cries out in the chief concourses,
At the openings of the gates in the city
She speaks her words:
Wisdom is out in the open.
She is not hidden away, or hard to find. Wisdom does not take rocket science to
calculate or discern. One of our ruses to rationalize away our sin is to think
that it’s just so complicated to obey God. It really is very simple. We hear
her voice all the time in our conscience, in our Bibles, in our parents, our
friends. God has made Himself and His ways plain. But still, we protest: “Lord,
I didn’t know what you wanted of me.” Even though, deep in our hearts, we did
know, but we didn’t want to listen. Let us heed lady wisdom’s call, without
dissembling or protesting.
