I’ve got my brother and his family here this week. All the children have been happily playing with the cousins, and I have enjoyed the fellowship of my sister-in-law. My brother has been tackling discussing wisdom with me. His knowledge of the Bible and hermeneutics has been helpful for me, and I’m certain God sent him at this time in my study. I think it will be helpful.
I was going to insert this exception verse in my last dependence/ wisdom entry, but I opted to tackle it separately.
Although it is clear that the source of all wisdom is God, one place where wisdom seems to also have a human conduit is Proverbs 29:15.
The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame.
Here is another verse I’ve been thinking on:
And there came of all people to hear the wisdom of Solomon, from all kings of the earth, which had heard of his wisdom. (I Kings 4:34)
It’s clear that there was benefit in watching Solomon at work, exercising the wisdom God gave him. I’m also interested in viewing the examples of Solomon’s wisdom that God gives. As I said in a comment. I don’t want to make wisdom more narrow than the Bible does.
