(Proverbs 15:31 KJV) The ear that heareth the reproof of life abideth among the wise.
The call we receive is composed of a series of responses. It starts with this one, to “listen” (8085). From there you have a call to faith, a call to repentance, a call to obedience. As a result we will “abide” (dwell NASB) (3885a) among the “wise” (2450). I remind you and I remind myself, that is an eternal dwelling. This is not just a cool promise that we will sit with a bunch of awesome people. In Proverbs it talks about sitting at the gates and high places. That sounds impressive. I think it also it a reminder that we will be with the wise for eternity.
So? Keep your listening ears on. Turn up the microphone. God is giving directions and you probably have an intersection just ahead.
