Spiritual House Building
Proverbs 24:1-22 Be not envious of evil men, nor desire to be with them, for their hearts devise violence, and their lips talk of trouble...
Two verses, Proverbs 24:3 and 4, just grabbed me today about wisdom. What a word picture they provided because everyone is familiar with a house and having rooms in it. I thought about my home and came up with this. First, it's really the core, the center, of my family and life. It's where my husband and I spend the majority of our time; it's where we rest, where we build our relationship; and the things we love and cherish are kept (or live) there. As I thought about this house analogy, I ended up asking myself this: If my earthly house is important to me, how much more should I be concerned with building and maintaining my "spiritual house"?
So what did verses 3 and 4 reveal to you about wisdom and your "spiritual house"? Anything else in Proverbs 24 grab your attention today? Tami W.
