“For those who find me find life, and receive favor from the Lord.”  (Proverbs 8: 35, NIV)

(Warning: Another Kansas University reference today! Go Jayhawks!)

The testimony of the Lord is everywhere.  We only need pay attention to see (and hear) it.

As you may remember from yesterday’s posting, today’s scripture, from the book of Proverbs, is inscribed on the museum building of the University of Kansas.  Just across the street and up the block a bit in the Kansas School of Religion is a large stained-glass window of Moses before the burning bush — which is also depicted on the University’s seal.

There it was (and is) for every passerby: An invitation to life, divine favor, and communion with the Holy.

What invitations from God will we see today?  And what will be our response?  – Luther

“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 – ROCK CHALK JAYHAWK!).

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
