SAA Notes

Solomon advances several reasons as to why wisdom is still better than folly/stupidity.

SJA Notes

“Bread is made for laughter, and wine gladdens life, and money answers everything.

God gives bread and wine and money. There is good in the enjoyment of these gifts from God.

One chief aspect of this enjoyment th

at we see clear in the book of Psalms is that of _thanksgiving_.

Psalm chapter 118 says,

“Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever!”

May we obtain a little wisdom today from God’s word.

* Father God,

Thank You for the good gifts You give to us.

Thank You for the temporal and the spiritual gifts You give.

Gifts of encouragement and exhortation, of skill and excellence in what You give our hands to do, in mind and body and spirit.

Thank You for the gifts given in the now and those promised in the not yet.

Thank You for Jesus, the gift like no other.

And thank You for the life we have in our King Jesus, the life now and the life to come.

Amen.
