Building a House of Wisdom…

Read: Proverbs 7-9
Marked: Proverbs 9:1, Wisdom has built her house, She has hewn out her seven pillars;

Verse 10 says the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

Wisdom begins and ends with God. Like a completed house the Bible is all that is needed to gain wisdom and understanding. A house of seven pillars is a strong house. Seven is also the number of perfection. It is also the number of rest.

Such a house has many rooms because it is supported by a strong foundation. Those who enter the house of wisdom will find it prepared to feed them (V2). It is a house that all May enter should they choose to (V4).

Looking elsewhere for wisdom is foolish because there is no other way of understanding (V6). In the house of wisdom your days will be multiplied and years of life will be added to you (V11).
