…she [wisdom] calls from the highest places in the town….”Lay aside immaturity, and live, and walk in the way of insight.”
The foolish woman is loud….calling to those who pass by….But they do not know that the dead are there, that her guests are in the depths of Sheol.
The way of life and the way of death call out to us everyday.
They will call to you today.
The less knowledge you have of the Holy One, the more difficult it will be to distinguish between these two voices.
Conversely, the deeper your knowledge of YHWH, the closer you are to Him, the clearer His voice becomes.
My sheep know my voice.
My sheep know my voice because they know me intimately, they can easily recognize it.
They’ve hung out with Me enough to hear my voice clearly even from a distance.
They can distinguish between the voice of wisdom and the voice of foolishness.
But to the untrained ear, to the one who rarely puts her or himself before Me, it is frighteningly difficult
to discern between the voice of wisdom and the voice of foolishness.
We have all witnessed this in ourselves and probably more clearly in others.
Someone feels justified in doing something foolish because they are fooled.
Listen exclusively to the superior voice of Jesus. May it drown out all other voices. Except for those who also listen intensely.
