“Wisdom is like a woman…” – Proverb 1:20
Had a few too many ‘moms’ as I grew up. It was the result of a few too many divorces my parents experienced.
As such, I felt a bit of a disconnect through my youth and through it I would borrow characteristics I saw of moms in church to build my internal perspective.
Pastor Wright introduced me to Wisdom, Knowledge, and Understanding, in the book of Proverbs, and pointed out that they were always referred to in the feminine.
Curiosity got the better of me, as it usually does, and I read and reread those verses coming to the conclusion that God had perhap removed more than just a rib from man when He created woman.
Among my greatest joys in being married to Jaclyn is seeing these characteristics personified in our relationship and in the relationship she has developed with our kids.
