Listening to the Wise

Proper 19, Year B, Old Testament

Scripture: Old Testament: Proverbs 1:20-33

The Old Testament reading today is the second of three in the Book of Proverbs. In this section of Proverbs, Wisdom is a woman, also known as, Lady Wisdom. She is standing at a street corner and telling those passing by that they will suffer because they do not follow wisdom’s way.  Lady Wisdom is heard everywhere because she does not only impart her wisdom to the rich, but she shares it with everyone that will listen. This passage in Proverbs reminds us that we need to listen to the wise. Listening to the wise people around us helps us to better ourselves, as well as, learn from others. Sometimes we are too proud to listen to others and this lesson helps to remind us that others may be speaking to us for God.
