devotional on Proverbs 3:13-18 with the other Lutheran
churches in and near Jamestown, NY. This is the message I gave.
The last thing we are told is that wisdom is a tree of life. Haven’t we heard that term somewhere else? We first hear the term in Genesis in the garden with Adam and Eve. If they ate of that tree, they would live forever.
Then we have another tree in the wilderness, which saved the Israelites from poisonous snakes. All the people had to do was look at the snake on the pole and they were saved.
Wisdom brings us happiness and so much more. Amen!
