Proverbs 9:1 states, “Wisdom has built her house, She has hewn out her seven pillars.” What are these “seven pillars” of wisdom? Likely the reference is symbolical representing the fact that if we use godly wisdom properly, our lives will be complete.

But it is interesting to note that James, in his epistle, chapter 3 and verse 17, in defining godly wisdom lists seven aspects: “But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.”

What does your house of wisdom look like? How are the pillars holding up?
