Our Protection

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Ecclesiastes 7:1-13

The first half of Ecclesiastes 7 reads much like Proverbs, putting before us a variety of pithy statements about wisdom and folly for us to consider. Knowing that God gave Solomon incredible wisdom above and beyond that of any other man, I am always intrigued by his words, instruction and commentary on the subject of wisdom. So as I started through Ecclesiastes 7:1-13 this morning, my prayer was for God to show me something I hadn't noticed about wisdom previously. After noting and writing down a number of verses, God drew my attention back to the message contained in verse 12, that wisdom functions as our protection as we navigate life. This got me thinking about some of those protective benefits--protection from making poor decisions, protection from people who may harm us, protection from situations that aren't safe--and I'm sure there are many more. Ecclesiastes 7:1-13, and specifically verse 12, highlighted for me how possessing wisdom is such a necessary part of living well.

What stood out to you about wisdom from this passage, and why? What's one situation where having wisdom provided protection for you? Tami

Wisdom often preserves us from hasty decisions. I know it has done so for me.
