Conclusion

“For consider your calling, brothers: not many of you were wise according to worldly standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth. But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong; God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are, so that no human being might boast in the presence of God. And because of him you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption,”

1 Corinthians 1:26-30

What a wonderful gift to have a Lord that can inhabit our being with his spirit. That he chooses us the weak of this world to be filled with the wisdom of God, Christ himself.  I hope that you have found solace and strength as you encountered Jesus in the Proverbs. 

I pray that you walk in the fear of the Lord now more willingly knowing that it will make your heart tender and make you wise. 

As you take time to meditate on the importance of your words I pray that you will trust The Word to give you wise words at the right time. 

Lastly, I pray that you will find contentment in your work. That you will see him at work in every area of your life. I leave you with this quote by Ray Ortlund, “Our work really matters. Think of all the hours in the week that we spend in productive work. He brings it all, if it’s given to Him, into his kingdom. We become instruments of His redemption in the world as we serve customers, clients, patients, and constituents.” 

May the Counsel of Jesus through the Proverbs produce lasting fruit in you as you spend time meditating on them. Amen.
