Wisdom has set up her 7 pillars
Proverbs 9 verse 1 says “Wisdom has built her house; she has set up its seven pillars”.
I found this very interesting that there were 7 pillars that wisdom had used to build her house. Then over a process of time, in my own reading and personal study of the bible, I found James Chapter 3 verse 16 and 17 talked about the two types of wisdom.
Verse 13 talks of good works done in the meekness of wisdom.
Verse 16 describes one type of wisdom as earthly, sensual, and demonic. This type is seen is envy and self-seeking, and where brings confusion.
Verse 17 however speak of the beautiful wisdom that comes from above. Such a beautiful description of one that is Godly. These attributes called “pure (undefiled), peaceable, gentle (courteous and considerate), willing to yield (to reason), fully of mercy (compassion) and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.”
So as I meditate on these two scriptures, Proverbs 9 verse 1 and James 3 verse 17, I am both challenged and encouraged to allow Holy Spirit to build not only my own life, but also to flow through me into the lives of my children and grandchildren: and into the community around us.
