Insight comes in small packets. There’s no landslide of wisdom. You can’t go to school and take a course in Wisdom 101. But she is everywhere. Every day, she is always around. Solomon said,
Wisdom calls aloud in the street, she raises her voice in the public squares; at the head of the noisy streets she cries out, in the gateways of the city she makes her speech. Wisdom is just everywhere.
Now it follows naturally that the message of necessity is broken up into packets that come to you at odd moments and odd places. One moment you don’t see something and the next moment you do. She demands your participation in the shaping of wisdom. She demands that you be attentive. She demands that you think about it and that you work your way through it. Now, you notice I speak of wisdom as
she? I do it because Solomon did in the Book of Proverbs—I think with a reason in mind.
