The Kitchen Table Devotional: The Game of Life Day 59
And he said to the vineyard-keeper, ‘Behold, for three years I have come looking for fruit on this fig tree without finding any. Cut it down! Why does it even use up the ground?’ Luke 13:7
Wisdom is fruitful, not futile. It doesn’t lay dormant or distant from our lives who have found it. It speaks, it directs, it blesses. A person without fruit is a person without the wisdom of God. Without the wisdom of God, we are left with the worries of man. God says that His fruit is better than gold and yields better than choicest silver. That means that wisdom works in and through those who want it. James writes, But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him (James 1:5)
I love those who love me;
And those who diligently seek me will find me.
18 “Riches and honor are with me,
Enduring wealth and righteousness.
19 “My fruit is better than gold, even pure gold,
And my yield better than choicest silver.
20 “I walk in the way of righteousness,
In the midst of the paths of justice,
21 To endow those who love me with wealth,
That I may fill their treasuries. Proverbs 8:17-21
