verse 6: “A scoffer seeks wisdom, and finds none, But knowledge is easy to him who has understanding.”

At first, this verse seems to be a contradiction: a scoffer? seeking wisdom? The Holman concordance on Proverbs had an interesting statement about this verse on page 106: “Even a hardened sinner sometimes wants wisdom to escape an unpleasant situation, but he looks in the wrong place. A discerning person, however, gains knowledge easily because he knows the source to consult.”

Sometimes people have come to me with a question that I didn’t know the answer to; sometimes, they’ve come needing information that I didn’t have. However, I knew who might have the information they sought, so I would tell them that knowledge. Apologizing as they left, that I wasn’t able to be helpful, they would often times reply “that’s okay, you were able to steer me in the right direction.”

As Christians, we don’t always have all the answers. But we know Who does. 🙂

Have a blessed day!
