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. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. 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.

  1. One of my chief desires and exactly my prayer lately! Wisdom is so sorely needed to navigate in this world today where folly is right at our fingertips at every turn! Well said.
