It took a year to read the Bible, then almost 9 months to read the Apocrypha. Now, I'm going to try to offer reflections on the Narrative Lectionary. But, I won't be posting daily--at least, for a while.

Seeking Wisdom, Reflection on Wisdom of Solomon 6:12-16

In the Jewish wisdom tradition, Wisdom is one of God's closest agents, who was active in creation and who continues in the world to help the community live according to divine design. Wisdom of Solomon adds to this notion the idea that Wisdom will guide the soul to the goal of life, which is to live after death in the immediate presence of God. This is what it means to be immortal.
(from Preaching the Old Testament, Ronald J. Allen & Clark M. Williamson)

The foolish bridesmaids in Matthew's parable should have studied this passage. We should all be living it out.
