Enough Already?

Alright, alright, we've heard this before. Enough already. Why does the father in Proverbs keep harping on the wicked woman? Does he think his son is stupid?

If any "son," including us, thinks this way, then he doesn't understand the way of wisdom. The repetition is an invitation to meditation, to understanding, to prudence, knowledge, and discretion. I don't believe that the Holy Spirit gives us this particular, repeated example accidentally.

In order to be formed in the way of wisdom, to have our desires trained and aimed at the true knowledge of God, we need the repetition that we will hear from God's word this Lord's Day. Join us to hear and respond to our God!
