Proverbs Series II: Wisdom Bouncers

Rate this item
(0 votes)
We move to Proverbs 2 for this particular Sunday morning. Proverbs 1 was an introduction and now Solomon sort of continues the introduction but also offers a somewhat generalized bit of wisdom. Wisdom comes in the Fear of God ... Wisdom comes from God. But, in chapter 2, we see wisdom and fear of God and knowledge of God all are personified into what we might consider today as "bouncers." Stuggling with something in your life? Maybe a sin. Maybe a vice. Maybe a friend. To keep your life balanced and God-centered, you and I need to have a strategic plan. We cannot let evil sneak into our lifes. We need a 'guard' system to shield against the evils of the world & Satan. What is that guard? What is that strategy?

Bouncers. Bouncers are employed to rid an establishment of troublemakers. Bouncers don't engage in conversation. They don't sit around and discuss what led up to the trouble nor do they take time to assess the situation. When told to eject someone, they jump to action and "usher" the troublemaker to the door, nay, beyond to the parking lot. Bouncers are big, effective, and strong.

Wisdom is to serve in our lives like a bouncer. When troublemakers try to get in our life and cause trouble, we need to us wisdom as the bouncer to quickly, effectively eject the evil. Need to say "No" to Satan? You need a bouncer. Want to do the right things? You need a bouncer. You need Wisdom.
