Sirach 1:1-10: God’s Wisdom
Monday, February 27, 2017
God’s wisdom is eternal.
All wisdom comes from the LORD and with the LORD it remains forever, and is before all time.
God’s wisdom is immense and all-encompassing.
The sand of the seashore, the drops of rain, the days of eternity: who can number these? Heaven’s height, earth’s breadth, the depths of the abyss: who can explore these?
God’s wisdom is prudent.
Before all things else wisdom was created; and prudent understanding, from eternity. The word of God on high is the fountain of wisdom and her ways are everlasting.
God’s wisdom does not discriminate.
To whom has wisdom not been revealed? Who knows her subtleties? To whom has the discipline of wisdom been revealed? And who has understood the multiplicity of her ways? There is but one, wise and truly awe-inspiring, seat upon his throne and the LORD is the God of dominion. The LORD has lavished wisdom on the friends of God.
God’s wisdom invites each of us to listen to her today.
When we use the scripture link and the drop down menus to explore these verses, we open ourselves to the surprises God’s wisdom has in store for us.
