Proverbs 8:8 (NLT)
8 My advice is wholesome. There is nothing devious or crooked in it.

This verse speaks about wisdom which God has founded. The wisdom of God is right, just and vindicated. There is nothing twisted, or distorted about it. Wisdom can form advice which is wholesome and useful to a person’s life.

Have you ever tried to assemble something complicated without instructions? I have seen people make the attempt to do so only to find themselves part way through the assembly and they have to go back to the instructions and start over. Once they start following the instructions pieces are found easier and other parts just seem to fall into place. God gives us wisdom in His words for our lives. If we fail to read the words He has given us then it is like trying to assemble the complicated item without instructions. We might start in the wrong place; we might have the wrong conceptual view; we might just really make a mess of things. But when we take God’s wisdom to heart we have a sure way of knowing what is right and what is wrong. And the more we study God’s word, the more wisdom we gain about Him.
