I've been thinking a lot about the above verse. I want my home to be built on a foundation of wisdom. And, I want our lives to mirror that. As I am raising these children to know and love the Lord - wisdom is of utmost importance.
Proverbs 24:3-4, "By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established; through knowledge its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures."
I explained wisdom to my children as knowing the difference between right and wrong, knowing how to make good choices, learning to follow God and His ways and having understanding of His ways.
We read this verse together and I provided things from nature for us to create "wisdom" pictures in worship on our first day of school.
I was also reminded of this verse ~
We sang this to music (from this cd). It is my heart's desire that my children would grow in this same way as Jesus did - that they would follow His example.
Luke 2:40, "And the child grew and became strong; he was filled with wisdom,
and the grace of God was upon Him."
Read Proverbs 4 for more encouragement in seeking and investing wisdom in our lives and the lives of our children!
