Folly (foolishness) is the path many choose over wisdom. Wisdom builds her house, makes her provision for a great feast, calls her guests, and exhorts them to partake of her bounty. The path to wisdom can be challenging, that's why many chose the path of folly instead.
This text makes clear the benefits of following Wisdom, of answering her invitation, gathering in her house and consuming what she has prepared. While it might seem an obvious choice to make, part of the enduring drama conveyed in this text is that some continue to choose folly over wisdom, to continue in the way of simplicity instead of wisdom.
So what does this mean to you today? It means that there are two invitations and they both look attractive, but only one comes with pure motives. Choose God, choose His path, choose His feast, and in so doing you literally choose the life He intends for you to live. Choose folly and you choose what the enemy has for you. Destruction and ruin. Choose to pursue wisdom today.
Proverbs 9:10 (ESV) The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight.
