Friends in Christ Weekly Message
June 2, 2007

Do you hear Lady Wisdom calling?
     Can you hear Madame Insight raising her voice?
She's taken her stand at First and Main,
     at the busiest intersection.
Right in the city square
     where the traffic is thickest, she shouts,
You - I'm talking to all of you,
     everyone out here on the streets!
Listen, you idiots - learn good sense!
     You blockheads - shape up!
Don't miss a word of this - I'm telling you how to live well,
     I'm telling you how to live at your best.
My mouth chews and savors and relishes truth -
     I can't stand the taste of evil!
You'll only hear true and right words from my mouth;
     not one syllable will be twisted or skewed.
You'll recognize this as true - you with open minds;
     truth-ready minds will see it at once.
Prefer my life-disciplines over chasing after money,
     and God-knowledge over a lucrative career.
For Wisdom is better than all the trappings of wealth;
     nothing you could wish for holds a candle to her.
Proverbs 8:1-11 (Message*)

Are you listening to God's wisdom? Do you have a truth-ready mind? Are you choosing the way of God's wisdom instead of the world's ideas of success?
