The Way of Wisdom | Session 02 | Why?

truth-seekers-fellowship-2021-wisdom

Why should we read, meditate on, and study the Wisdom writings of the Scriptures? Because Reality is rooted in Wisdom, the Wisdom writings help us “righteously wonder” about the way things are in the LORD-God’s world. And Wisdom itself is like honey to our souls.
