“To Have and to Hold”

May 20, 2018

 

Proverbs 3: 18:  “She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her, and happy are all who hold her fast.”  For the first two weeks after Pentecost the MDR includes readings from Proverbs, a book often quoted in the New Testament and revered even by secular academics.  One common principle throughout its verses is this: Wisdom won’t just fall into your lap, and once you acquire it, you must exert an effort to hold on to it.  Multitudes of trite clichés and platitudes can be found at the click of a mouse but real wisdom – which comes only from the Lord – takes serious study and contemplation.
