Wisdom calls aloud in the street, she raises her voice in the public squares; at the head of the noisy streets she cries out, in the gateways of the city she makes her speech: “How long will you simple ones love your simple ways? How long will mockers delight in mockery and fools hate knowledge? If you had responded to my rebuke, I would have poured out my heart to you and made my thoughts known to you.”
Looking at verse 20, we see Wisdom calls out in the street and she raises her voice in the public squares. This tells us that no one is without excuse. Wisdom is available to everyone who seeks.
Consider the words Wisdom says in verse 23. “If you had responded to my rebuke, I would have poured out my heart to you and made my thoughts known to you.” That’s grace. Giving everyone the chance to repent. If people did repent, not only would they be forgiven, they would have many secrets shared with them. Wouldn’t that be awesome? So, are you listening to Wisdom today?
Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout today. Until next time, Shalom
