Wisdom & Folly, They Both Call


Wisdom
Pr.3 13..Blessed is the man who finds wisdom, the man who gains understanding, for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold. She is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her-


Wisdom
She built her house
Prepared her meat
&
Mixed her wine
Upon her table
Set
Then sent her maids
Calling,
From the highest point
Of the city-

Come,
All who are simple..
Eat my food
Drink my wine-
Leave your simple ways
Behind

Walk in the way
Of understanding-

Folly
Sits at the door of her house-
At the highest point
Of the city
Loud
&
Undisciplined
To those who pass by
She calls-
Come,
All who are simple
To those who lack judgment
Stolen water is sweet-

Verses & inspiration taken from
Pr. 9

there is definantly a difference between these two girls: Folly and Wisdom. I've hung out with both of them.

Folly is often more popular to hang out with because she seems to make life more exciting. However, Wisdom should be everybody's bff because she knows how to life eternally.

You presented these scriptures well.

Let's be perfectly clear- the war on free speech is spiritual!
