The Kitchen Table Devotions: The Game of Life Day 54
They were saying this, testing Him, so that they might have grounds for accusing Him. But Jesus stooped down and with His finger wrote on the ground. John 8:6
Wisdom works, it doesn’t get worked. Those who love wisdom love and save their own soul. Wickedness sabotages the soul of a man, contaminating his own conscience and ruining his own reputation. When we can’t be honest and honorable, we become hateful and harmful to ourselves and others. The preacher of Proverbs wrote:
He who gets wisdom loves his own soul;
He who keeps understanding will find good.
9 A false witness will not go unpunished,
And he who tells lies will perish.
10 Luxury is not fitting for a fool;
Much less for a slave to rule over princes.
11 A man’s discretion makes him slow to anger,
And it is his glory to overlook a transgression. Proverbs 19:8-11
Jesus, with wisdom, would not be worked by the crowd but rather worked His wisdom on the crowd, saving and building a life. Walk in the wisdom of God, not the ways of man and love your own soul.
