(Proverbs 2:16 KJV) To deliver thee from the strange woman, even from the stranger which flattereth with her words;
I feel a little let down. I don’t think I have ever needed to be rescued from an aggressive woman. I have come across the scene in books and probably seen it on the screen. Two people meet by accident in a bar and within a few pages are having wild and improbable sex at her place. I am still waiting to practice my self control. Somehow I don’t think it is going to happen with all that drama.
I need wisdom to “deliver” (5337) me from more mundane things. With me it is more meeting a box of Cheese-Its in a grocery store and within a few pages having wild and too common gluttony in the recliner at my place. It isn’t quite as exciting. Hollywood won’t make a movie about it. I still need delivery.
So? Wisdom will give us the focus to help us deal with the real challenges we face. They may come in a box or in a conversation. Help is not on the way, it has arrived.
