Andrews thought for the day
"My son, (and daughter), do not let wisdom and understanding out of your sight, preserve sound judgement and discretion; they will be life for you, an ornament to grace your neck. Then you will go your way in safety, and your foot will not stumble. When you lie down you will not be afraid."
(Proverbs Ch 3 vs 21 to 24).
King Solomon presents his subjects with the way to life and to right living. It is the way of wisdom and understanding and the way of God. Fast forward around one thousand years and to the Apostle Paul presenting to the Church in Corinth the way of God's absolute wisdom in Christ. He writes, 'Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.' - 'It is because of Him, (God), that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God - that is our true righteousness, holiness, and redemption'. (1 Corinthians Ch 1 vs 24 and 30). It appeared foolishness on God's part to stand back and allow His Son to suffer and die for us, yet this is the ultimate action of the only wise God that we might have life in Christ, and so that we might have peace in Him, and go on our way in the safety and security of God. We keep this wisdom constantly before us.
'Christ triumphant, ever reigning, Saviour, Master, King; Lord of heaven, our lives sustaining, hear us as we sing .....Yours the glory and the crown, the high renown, the eternal Name'.
