Genesis 2:4-25; Job 2:11-3:26; Matthew 2:1-23

Wisdom has built her house, She has hewn out her seven pillars. Proverbs 9:1, NKJV
But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy. James 3:17, NKJV

In Proverbs, wisdom is personified, building her house with the perfect number of pillars—seven. These seven pillars could be compared to the characteristics of wisdom named in the Book of James. Those pillars of wisdom are: pure, peaceable, gentle, available, merciful, fruitful, and sincere. Jesus Christ became for us wisdom from God (1 Cor. 1:30). Build on Him! —Rex Trogdon

So build your life on the Lord Jesus Christ,
And the blessings will come down. —Ann Omley
