This beautiful poem helps us to think about God’s triune nature, actively engaged in community throughout the process of creating and sustaining the universe. Here, the Spirit (lady Wisdom) is portrayed as finding delight and joy in creation. The Common English Bible translates vs. 30-31 as, “I was having fun, smiling before him all the time, frolicking with his inhabited earth and delighting in the human race.”
When was the last time you frolicked in nature? Has it been since you were a child? What was your favorite way to have fun outdoors when you were younger? To what degree do you consider having fun as an expression of wisdom?
Make time today to engage with nature in a joyful way and offer a prayer of praise to the One who created it.
