Serve him pt 3: wisdom

This is part 3 of a series I’ve been doing on my one word for 2014, serve, in relation to wives serving their husbands.
Here are part one and part two.

A few weeks ago I chose Proverbs 31:26 as my memory verse.    She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.

The next day I was reading in Proverbs chapter 4, and verses 4-9 deal with gaining and cherishing wisdom and understanding and it brought me back to that verse.

Get wisdom, get understanding: do not forget my words or swerve from them. Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding. Esteem her, and she will exalt you; embrace her, and she will honor you. She will set a garland of grace on your head and present you with a crown of splendor. (Proverbs 4: 4-9)

You know how you can read a passage 100 times and suddenly see it differently? That’s what happened to me today. The word she stood out.
Women are to speak with wisdom and faithful instruction. How important our gaining of wisdom and understanding is to that of our husbands! I read the passage again and repeated Proverbs 31:26 after each verse.

Proverbs 4:6  – Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you.
She spoke with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue. (31:26)

Our gaining of wisdom can not only protect us, but also our husbands. It is important, not only for our own benefit, but also that we can be a benefit to others.
