Proverbs 24:3-4 “By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established; through knowledge its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures.”
The Scene: A house filled with love, looking similar to a painting by a famous artist–the warm, inviting light is shining out the windows as though inviting those on the outside to come in: those who have not yet committed their lives unto Jesus the Christ–unsaved.
Those who have only worldly wisdom lack Godly wisdom. The red door represents the blood of Jesus–all who want to come in must pass through the doorway of Jesus (find salvation/confession of faith in His name). Some come inside but many just pass by, who will spend eternity in hell separated from the God of love.
Job 28:28 “And he said to man, ‘The fear of the Lord–that is wisdom, and to shun evil is understanding.’ “
Psalm 119:104 “I gain understanding from your precepts; therefore I hate every wrong path.”
2 Peter 1:5;8 “For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. v.8 “For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
This leads us to all truth, by His Word, which gives us Godly wisdom, knowledge, and understanding.
John 7:17 “If anyone chooses to do God’s will, he will find out whether my teaching comes from God or whether I speak on my own.”
John 8:12 “When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.’ “
