“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Wisdom 6:17-19

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Wisdom begins when you sincerely want to learn.

.

To desire Wisdom is to love her;

to love her is to keep her laws;

to keep her laws is to be certain of immortality;

immortality will bring you close to God.

.

– Wisdom 6:17-19 (GNT)

REFLECTION…

.

True wisdom and God are inextricably linked

and here, in these verses, Wisdom is personified.

It is clear that the writer is speaking of God:

that God is Wisdom personified.

.

The one true source of all wisdom is God,

and wisdom is a gift of the Holy Spirit,

and it lives in the heart of those who love God and seek Him above all else.

God lives in the heart of those who keep His laws;

who trust in Him;

who believe in the resurrection of the body;

and look forward to life everlasting in God’s Divine Presence.

QUOTE…

.

"[Wisdom] cannot be learned, it is a gift of the Holy Spirit!

.

This is why we must ask the Lord to gift us the Holy Spirit

and the gift of wisdom

that teaches us to see with God’s eyes,

to feel with God’s heart,

to speak with God’s words!”

.

– Pope Francis

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Holy Spirit, I humbly welcome Your truth,

I open my ears to receive Your counsel,

I open my heart to receive Your eternal wisdom.

Amen.
