    Temptation is everywhere, and God is telling us how to use Wisdom in not being tempted by foolish people, things, and ways. Really doing the right thing (righteousness) by living by God's Word, so we can go home to be with the Lord, and we will hear Him say "well done my good and Faithfull servant." As I read the book of Proverbs, I am gaining new Wisdom, and renewing my Wisdom.

    Proverbs chapter 9 enlightens christians that to fear the Lord and learn of His statues will allow the Lord to prolong your life. The Lord warns all christians to be aware of the temptations of the deception from the enemy. The Lord informs christians that the trap is death and all those who have gone before you are already destined in hell. The Lord is saying if we truly want wisdom, it is ready and available and we do not have to seek hard for it.
