“For those who find me find life, and receive favor from the Lord.” (Proverbs 8: 35, NIV)
These words from the book of Proverbs are inscribed on the museum building of the University of Kansas (my alma mater).
I don’t know why Wisdom’s promise is posted on the museum and not, instead, on one of the other prominent buildings on the campus. Yet, a museum is appropriate in that it is a repository of the tangible history of a people, or of an era.
Is Wisdom evident in our tangible history: The bank account, the appointment calendar, the contact list? Have you and I chosen wisely the investments we’ve made of our treasure, our time, and in our relationships.
The litmus test in these things is whether our choices would find favor in the eyes of our Heavenly Father. – Luther
