(Proverbs 7:4 KJV) Say unto wisdom, Thou art my sister; and call understanding thy kinswoman:
Are you comfortable with the teaching of the Bible? I never had a “sister” (269). My wife tells me that is why I don’t understand women but I am not sure I have met a man who does and many of them have sisters. Let’s just say that I have a greater deficiency in understanding women. Having a daughter has helped some.
I have watched my children though. My daughter is probably my son’s best “friend” (4129). They have had their share of fights and knocked heads over the years but it has served to bring them closer, not drive them apart. The word should be that way with us. We may not be comfortable with something we read. I certainly don’t like the concept of Hell and eternal damnation. I struggle with it. I try to understand it in a way that would not happen if it were just a casual acquaintance. In the end it brings me the “understanding” (998) I need.
So? Wrestle with truth and it will become you friend. God does not want us on causal terms with Him or His teaching.
