A. Her spacious house.
Supported by seven pillars.
B. Her diligence to daily matters.
1. Killed and dressed the fatted calf.
2. Deliberately improved upon the taste of the wine.
3. Furnished her table.
Here as in other uses table is put for the whole of her affairs.
Comp. Psalm 78:19; 1 Cor.10:21
II. Wisdom Invites . 3-6
A. The call to all.
As far as the high places, does not folly dwell there also?
B. A call to the exercise of scrutiny.
III. Wisdom Instructs. 7-11
The Apostle Paul said, “As much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.”
A. Meddling in the instruction of the wicked is very unwise.
B. Instructing the wise begats more wisdom.
Yet here the intention is for us to be on the receiving end!
How well do you accept criticism?
IV. Wisdom Has Respect to the Individual. 12
A. To be wise is to be wise for one-self.
B. To mock (scorn) is to bear the price alone.
Are you wise oh man or woman? Have you tasted and seen that the Lord is good? Have you understood the wisdom of the gospel of Jesus Christ, or will you perish?
