Solomon's Love For Wisdom
2 Wisdom I loved and searched for from my youth; I resolved to have her as my bride, I fell in love with her beauty
3 She enhances her noble birth by sharing GOD’S life, for the Master of All has always loved her.
4 Indeed, she shares the secrets of GOD’S knowledge, and she chooses what HE will do.
5 If in this life wealth is a desirable possession, what is more wealthy than Wisdom
whose work is everywhere?
6 Or if it be the intellect that is at work, who, more than she, designs whatever exists?
7 Or if it be uprightness you love, why, virtues are the fruit of her labors, since it is she who teaches temperance and prudence, justice and fortitude; nothing in life is more useful for human beings.
8 Or if you are eager for wide experience,
she knows the past, forecasts the future;
she knows how to turn maxims, and solve riddles;
she has foreknowledge of signs and wonders, and of the unfolding of the ages and the times.
GOD, it is through wisdom that your people are protected. Wisdom is your light that allows us to get through the dark nights. It is wisdom that keeps us on our path. Thank you from our minds and hearts for sharing the gift of wisdom.
