This is what I teach my grandchildren, but the truth is that most adults have forgotten the lesson.
In Proverbs 3:16, Solomon tells us that in Wisdom’s right hand is health and long life. What’s in her left hand? Riches and honor!
Now, stay with me here.
Solomon is telling us that Wisdom has hands. And if that’s the case, then she’s also got arms, and she’s reaching out to you.
I often encounter folks who ask, “How can we get these things from God?”
But that’s the wrong question. He’s trying to give it to you! The real question is, “Why aren’t you receiving it?”
It’s being put right in front of you. Just take it out of Wisdom’s outstretched hands!
But you’ve got to take it all.
You aren’t going to have long life without health, just like you aren’t going to truly enjoy abundance and riches without the honor.
We need it all, and it’s right there for the taking.
Isn’t that wonderful?
Do you want to learn to recognize Wisdom and receive all that she’s offering?
