Wisdom is personified throughout the book of Proverbs. This idea of taking on the characteristics of a person is especially evident here in Proverbs 8. For example, wisdom “calls out” in this chapter. I am especially drawn to verse 34. “Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway.” Here is the charge to us to stand before God and His word every day. We have a promise that if we discipline ourselves in this way, we will discover the wisdom of God.
