By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established; through knowledge its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures. (Proverbs 24:3-4)
We are all building a house today and every day.
Not a physical house that we live in, but a spiritual house that lives in us.
The house that we build is often built with common sense or maybe even built with bricks of fear, doubt and confusion.
Solomon, the guy that wrote the book of Proverbs, advised that we should build the home within us on blocks of wisdom and understanding; that wisdom comes from asking God about things.
God’s wisdom can also often be found in what great men and women have to say, as they have sought God for answers on how to build their own lives.
From these words we get the phrase ‘pearls of wisdom’, meaning that we can receive so much understanding through one small spoken nugget of truth.
