    "O ye simple, UNDERSTAND wisdom: and, ye fools, BE YE of an understanding heart." (v 5) "How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge? TURN YOU AT MY REPROOF: BEHOLD, I WILL POUR OUT MY SPIRIT UNTO YOU, I WILL MAKE KNOWN MY WORDS UNTO YOU." (1:22-23) The LORD gives wisdom and knowledge to them that obey, and them that ask!

    "Doth not wisdom cry? and understanding put forth her voice? She stands in the top of high places, by the way in the places of the paths." By wisdom God created the heavens and the earth and everything in them. God then made man "in His image and likeness." But how can we attain to His knowledge? It must start with a good conscience, like a little child; and increase in stature by proof and grace.

    To S. Morrow - I'm just curious; how do you know you are "called by His name?" I know this is a 'quote' you used, but I am assuming you are stating the fact in your own life that you are called by His name, personally. What did you do to let you know this?
