Word To the Wise

Proverbs 3:7-8 “Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil. This will bring health to your body, and nourishment to your bones.” Yesterday I went to have my wisdom teeth removed. As I lay in the dentist’s chair completely numb to the pain of what sounded like my jaw bone collapsing under pressure, I wondered what word God might have for me. I didn’t get any confirmation in that moment, but this morning I found myself in Proverbs 3. After taking five years of Latin in high school, I think the only thing I retained was the fact that Socrates was known as the wisest man “because he knew that he knows nothing.” This very much echoes the truth told in scripture hundreds of years prior, that you are not to “be wise in your own eyes.” Lord as I get older, I think I need to more proactively resist this idea of self-wisdom. All wisdom comes from you and you alone. Thank you for being so good to me, and providing all the wisdom and guidance that I need. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
