Proverbs Chapter 8 – Wisdom Calls



As I read the Bible, I think of my past and my present.

I remember how I used to be. I remember how my life was full of conflict and turmoil.

Today I am committed to serving the Lord. That means living by the scripture. I believe in the scripture as it pertains to moral conduct.

For those who read the Bible and have a desire to live a better life, wisdom calls. Wisdom calls to the simple and says gain prudence. Wisdom calls to the foolish and says gain understanding. (Proverbs 8:5)


Wisdom says to love those who love me. Those who seek me find me. With me are riches, honor, wealth, and prosperity. (Proverbs 8: 17-18)

I have spent much of my life wondering down my own path. I didn’t have the scripture to guide me. I chose to ignore these basic principles that the Bible offers. And as a result, I continued to suffer. I’d go to the hole, fight, argue, lose my EFV’s, loose goodtime, and make my family cry. I was a fool!

But now I choose to allow the scripture to guide me. That is my God…the scripture. I’ve committed my life to the Lord, and I must admit, the transformation is AMAZING!

I had to see for myself. No one else could tell me. I have lived in darkness. I have lived in the light of God. There is no comparison! God is the way to go.

Please, grab your Bible and read Proverbs 8:32-36. My life is a testament to these five verses. Amen!
