The Kitchen Table Devotions:          The Game of Life Day 52

“Wisdom”

“He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.” John 8:7

The Proverbs say…

The LORD by wisdom founded the earth,
By understanding He established the heavens.
20 By His knowledge the deeps were broken up
And the skies drip with dew.
21 My son, let them not vanish from your sight;
Keep sound wisdom and discretion,
22 So they will be life to your soul
And adornment to your neck.
23 Then you will walk in your way securely
And your foot will not stumble.
24 When you lie down, you will not be afraid;
When you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.
25  Do not be afraid of sudden fear
Nor of the  onslaught of the wicked when it comes;
26 For the LORD will be your confidence
And will keep your foot from being caught.

Proverbs 3:19-26

Wisdom uncovers and understands wickedness, a perversion of the truth.  The pretense of the Pharisees that day was the law, but the truth was they were lying about their true motives.  They wanted to trap Jesus.  Wickedness works that way to warp our vision and wreck our values.  Get the wisdom of God.  The more we understand who God is, the more we will understand who man is not.
