We are encouraged in Sunday’s First Reading from the Book of Proverbs (Pr. 9:1-6) to seek wisdom.
Wisdom has built her house,
she has set up her seven columns;
she has dressed her meat,
mixed her wine,
yes, she has spread her table.
She has sent out her maidens;
she calls from the heights out over the city:
“Let whoever is simple turn in here;”
To the one who lacks understanding, she says,
“Come, eat of my food,
and drink of the wine I have mixed!
Forsake foolishness that you may live;
advance in the way of understanding.”
