And more wisdom

“Instruct all the skilled craftsmen whom I have filled with the spirit of wisdom. Have them make garments for Aaron that will distinguish him as a priest set apart for my service” (Exodus 28:3, NLT).

Proverbs is full of wise one liners and pithy sayings. A thorough study of the book would be helpful to anyone seeking wisdom and an understanding of life. We are advised to love wisdom like a sister (Proverbs 7:4), to prize and embrace her (4:8) and that she is more precious than rubies (3:15).

The craftsmen in Exodus were filled with the spirit of wisdom. God is the Spirit of wisdom and when he gives us wisdom, he is in effect filling us with himself. He is wisdom and he is our wisdom.

  1. I’ve been enjoying your entries on wisdom. As I am sure so many do, I love wisdom. What I find interesting however, is those times when I may have expressed something wise, I didn’t even know I was doing it. This is very comforting to me when I come to that realization. . .that it was God and not me.
