Sweet Wisdom

There is a counsel that dies, and a wisdom that lives.

The proud find death while the humble will seek out life. 

The fool lives in the seducing shade of the Tree of Knowledge, while the wise lean against the eternal bough of the Tree of Life.

It is only the instruction from the Tree of Life that sweetens the soul unto salvation.

  1. Wisdom is sweet to the soul. (Proverbs 24:14a)
  2. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow His precepts have good understanding. To Him belongs eternal praise. (Psalm 111:10)
  3. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. (Proverbs 9:10)

The fear of the Lord is the essence of all saving knowledge and wisdom. ~ Timothy Keller

Who, then, is the man that fears the Lord? He will instruct him in the way chosen for him. (Psalm 25:12)
