Ever since Adam and Eve were placed in the Garden of Eden and tempted by Satan to eat from the forbidden tree humanity has faced the question, “Whose voice will you listen to?”. Will you listen to the voice of wisdom, which pays attention to the realities of life and yields to God’s design, purposes, and plans, leading to blessing? Or will you listen to the voice of sinners (or Satan) that opposes God’s design, purposes, and plans, and ends in disaster? Our passage presents two voices, two paths, and two destinations and asks one question, “Whose voice will you listen to?”.
- The voice of wisdom (1:8-9)
- The voice of sinners (1:10-19)
- The voice of Jesus (Matt 11:28)
