Love and Seek True Wisdom
I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. (Proverbs 8:17)
Wisdom loves her lovers and seeks her seekers. He is already wise who seeks to be wise, and he has almost found wisdom who diligently seeks her. What is true of wisdom in general is specially true of wisdom embodied in our Lord Jesus. Him we are to love and to seek, and in return we shall enjoy His love and find Himself.
Our business is to seek Jesus early in life. Happy are the young whose morning is spent with Jesus! It is never too soon to seek the Lord Jesus. Early seekers make certain finders. We should seek Him early by diligence. Thriving tradesmen are early risers, and thriving saints seek Jesus eagerly. Those who find Jesus to their enrichment give their hearts to seeking Him. We must seek Him first, and thus earliest. Above all things Jesus. Jesus first and nothing else even as a bad second.
The blessing is that He will be found. He reveals Himself more and more clearly to our search…. Happy men who seek One who, when He is found, remains with them forever, a treasure growingly precious to their hearts and understandings.
Lord Jesus, I have found Thee; be found of me to an unutterable degree of joyous satisfaction.

I can remember my daughters very first Symphony. A family friend had given her and several others a ticket to go to this special event. She was about 16, and so excited. She had long wanted to go, and at last the opportunity arose.
She was so unsure what to wear, but wanted to look her best. So she decided on a black dress accented with white pearls. She was just glowing.
She has played the fiddle ever since she was 5, and even before played some on it. So the interest of hearing a Symphony with all the different instruments had been around for a long time.
Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise.
Psalms 33:3 KJV
When she got home she was telling her dad and I all about the conductor and the different pieces of music they played. There was many different instruments, and she was amazed with it all.
She had such a great time.
Then she went on to say, when they got to the Symphony all the girl assistants or workers to her surprise were also dressed in nice black dresses.
When they were handing out programs they were unsure whether to give her one or not. Politely, she smiled and took one. She won’t be wearing her black dress again, but did really look beautiful.
What a blessing it is when the Lord puts it on someones heart to give in a special way. That was special to Charlotte. It will be a time in her life she will always remember.
I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.
Acts 20:35 KJV
