Many of the sayings attributed to Solomon are similes taken from everyday life. Images evoke meanings beyond rational understanding. Feel the images. As you live today, notice how the Spirit can use all aspects of your world to instruct you in the ways of the Lord. There is no experience, good or bad, that God cannot hone into a word of truth and grace for you. Be sensitive in receiving these gratuitous gifts from the Lord.
Matthew 12:42 cites Jesus as saying about himself: “Something greater than Solomon is here!” When you let Jesus fully share his risen life with you, then you have an inner wisdom greater than Solomon’s. Spend part of your prayer-time, writing sentences that the Holy Spirit inspires that can become personal proverbs for you and wisdom for others.
