Proverbs 3:13-18 is about something more precious and priceless than anything. It’s not something we grab out of a burning home, but the wisdom in understanding what wisdom is. The parallel is that when we find wisdom, we gain understanding.
Do you want wisdom? If so, there is a path to get it, but it’s not what you think. Wisdom is the deliberate pursuit of something whose origin is God; it is manifold and multifaceted. We must have a deep reliance on the Father.
What if God’s Grace makes you angry?
What if God, by the demonstration of His kindness and mercy, shows someone grace that you or I think are not deserving? How do we respond to that?
How do we ask for God’s grace for people we hate? That’s at the crux of Jonah’s complaint. Michael teaches through the book of Jonah.
