Proverbs 8:1–4 (NKJV) — 1 Does not wisdom cry out, And understanding lift up her voice? 2 She takes her stand on the top of the high hill, Beside the way, where the paths meet. 3 She cries out by the gates, at the entry of the city, At the entrance of the doors: 4 “To you, O men, I call, And my voice is to the sons of men.
The availability of wisdom. The basic message of the opening verses of Proverbs 8 is that wisdom is available. She does not play hard to get. Even those with the least ability can find her. Scripture never pictures wisdom as unavailable to those who sincerely seek her.
James 1:5–8 (NKJV) — 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. 6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. 7 For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; 8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
