Pursuit of Wisdom #devotion #poetry


dawn waves

Wisdom is like a living organism

it grows in rich spiritual soil.

roots strong and going deep

it speaks to the loyal

Pride and avarice kills it

humility and love cause it to thrive

But it is not for the fainthearted

as it clarifies one’s eyes

you see fools life’s marauders

cause pain to the meek

the poor are down and trodden

ground to dust so to speak

you can’t find it in a college

it’s not something you can buy

pursue high search low

it is precious this Heaven’s prize

Wisdom is compared to insight and light. It’s aim is to instruct and lighten the load of the “simple”. Folly or foolishness is “loud, knows nothing” and attempts to mislead others. (leading ultimately to destruction.)

In days like these, it is imperative that we pray for wisdom; it can clarify the noise of the world and give sense to what makes so little…

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight” Proverbs 9:10

“Does not wisdom call out? Does not understanding raise her voice?At the highest point along the way, where the paths meet, she takes her stand; beside the gate leading into the city, at the entrance, she cries aloud:
“To you, O people, I call out; I raise my voice to all mankind. You who are simple, gain prudence; you who are foolish, set your hearts on it.[aListen, for I have trustworthy things to say; I open my lips to speak what is right. My mouth speaks what is true, for my lips detest wickedness. All the words of my mouth are just; none of them is crooked or perverse. To the discerning all of them are right;
    they are upright to those who have found knowledge. Choose my instruction instead of silver,knowledge rather than choice gold,
11 for wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire can compare with her.”

Proverbs 8:1-11

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. In 2019, we have an exciting project. We are developing elementary curriculum for Ugandan children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children who want to learn. Along with the curriculum, we hope to develop simple fictions about Uganda for the children to read at school. Trust me books are in short supply. We will use our trusted story tellers: a butterfly and a lion to make the stories come alive. Stay tuned as Bethany and Me put pen to paper. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2012 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the (quiet) originator of the idea and co-producer of One Stop Poetry. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

"There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" - George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their tabloid news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting - this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell
