Proverbs 8:4

“To you, O men, I call,

    and my cry is to the children of man.”

Proverbs 4:8 ESV

I suppose that every one of us, at one time or another, struggles with pride. In this case, I think there is a tendency to say, “This isn’t for me. It’s for those people.” And by those people we mean anyone who is not us. As I think through this scenario, I keep hearing the tough guy question: “You talkin’ to me?” Wisdom’s polite reply is, “Yes, I’m talkin’ to you.”

Wisdom cries out “to the children of man,” which covers everyone … the tough guy, the nerd, the wise person, and the fool. If you are not interested in wisdom at all, you need this. If you are interested in wisdom, but think you don’t need more at this time, you are not as wise as you think.

“Listen to advice and accept instruction,

    that you may gain wisdom in the future.”

Proverbs 19:20 ESV

Wisdom is calling. How are you (yes, you!) responding.
