Wisdom cries out in the street; in the squares she raises her voice.
…the tongue is a fire.
Wisdom and speech are intimately connected so say Proverbs and James. Wisdom calls out, cries out, raises her voice, reproofs, pours out her thoughts. The tongue is a fire, says James—capable of igniting new possibilities, or spreading destruction like wildfire. Blessing and curse, from the same mouth, from our mouths.
We are all too aware!
Not many should be teachers, James warns. How grateful we are, though, for those who teach us and those we love—so often amidst fraught circumstances and societal battles. How grateful we are for those who offer words of learning and life. How grateful we are to have the power to bless and support and create the conditions for wisdom to flourish among us!
