Pentecost +1 - Year C
Proverbs 8:1-4, 22-31
The depth of wisdom is from ancient of days. Actually from before any days, metaphoric or literal. Before even the chaos of the deep had any depth, wisdom was.
There is no need for wisdom to make a scene to get recognized. Wisdom is simply present. When we cover up its presence with our busyness or canon law, wisdom is still present. There could even be an equation set up that would equate wisdom with prevenient grace.
When we finally listen, it is as if wisdom has uttered a special call, just to us, but it was there all along and available to others as well. This sets up another equation of wisdom with humility.
In the end, the wisdom of wisdom is to always be up-to-date. A prior wisdom can be built upon and it may even be built into a different manifestation of wisdom that is most surprising.
