A Wise Fountain

The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life

~ Proverbs 13:14a (ESV)

As the waters of all true wisdom find their original source in God alone, so the many streams which flow out from wise godly people serve as a refreshing supply of the Lord’s spring. The teaching of the wise, of those who first seek God’s face and depend on His counsel, can be a blessing to others. God grants His people the privilege of sharing in His wisdom and He gifts Christ’s church with the knowledge and understanding to accomplish all His holy will. May we find and keep company with the wise, and drink deeply thereof, for there is a fountain of life.

  1. This is a wonderful Proverb. I certainly appreciate others’ wisdom. My walk with God has changed drastically since coming to an understanding of Scripture. And I thank Him every day for using people in my life, using their wisdom, to bring me to the knowledge of the truth. May we be ever-learning and willing to accept the wisdom of another.

    1. Many years ago I had a wise godly mentor in the faith. We spent hours sharing our thoughts and fellow-shipping around Scripture. Though he has gone to be with the Lord, the lasting influence he left behind stills bears fruit til this day. Thank you for the comment. 🙂
