Wisdom is personified as a female calling to everyone who walks in and out of the city gates; this way and that way down the paths, streets, and highways (1-3). Her sister, understanding is there alongside raising her voice (1). What is wisdom and what is understanding that anyone and everyone can hear?
Wisdom is more than the quality of having experience, knowledge, and good judgment. Wisdom is even more than the application of experience, knowledge, and good judgment. Wisdom is God, his nature implemented. Jesus is the embodiment and display of wisdom. Wisdom and understanding exist in all, around all, and before and after all. A person cannot go through any given moment without wisdom and understanding being there waiting.
Jesus like wisdom proclaims, “Here I am.” Nature is filled with evidence that God exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. (Hebrews 11:6) No one can go through life and not hear wisdom call out, “You who are simple, gain prudence; you who are foolish, gain understanding. Listen, for I have worthy things to say; I open my lips to speak what is right.” Therefore, no one has an excuse before God for his wisdom and understanding is plain to all, all the time.
