    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.
