Scripture for the day is Proverbs 8:30-31

then I was beside him, like a master worker;
and I was daily his delight,
    rejoicing before him always,
31 rejoicing in his inhabited world
    and delighting in the human race.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, I am startled by this teaching that the heart of wisdom is joy and delight in things for themselves. My modern life makes me too busy to stop and ponder “the work of thy hands” until it triggers praise to my maker and redeemer. Let me take time for beauty. Amen.
