Proverbs: Like my Father

“18She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her; those who hold her fast will be blessed. 19By wisdom the Lord laid the earth’s foundations, by understanding he set the heavens in place; 20by his knowledge the watery depths were divided, and the clouds let drop the dew.” ~Proverbs 3

Am I planted by the waters

Of wisdom

Do I eat of her fruit

Every day?


I want to be like my Father

Who laid the earth’s foundations

By Wisdom.

I want to be like my Father

Who placed the Heavens carefully

By Understanding.

I want to be like my Father

Who divided the water

Who causes the clouds to rain down

By Knowledge.

I want to eat of that fruit.

I want to be wise in the eyes of my Father.


Psalm 1

1Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, 2but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. 3That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither— whatever they do prospers. 4Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away. 5Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous. 6For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.

Psalm 104:24

O LORD, how many are Your works! In wisdom You have made them all; The earth is full of Your possessions.

Psalm 136:5

To Him who made the heavens with skill, For His lovingkindness is everlasting;

Deuteronomy 33:28

“So Israel dwells in security, The fountain of Jacob secluded, In a land of grain and new wine; His heavens also drop down dew.

Job 36:28

Which the clouds pour down, They drip upon man abundantly.
