A Tale of Two Women

Life Lessons from the Book of Proverbs

In every generation and place, we each must choose between the wisest of things and the most foolish of things. The Bible with its use of literary devices, styles this as the choice between two women, each of whom competes for our affection, indeed, clamours for it. It may seem more than a tad chauvinistic in this day and age, but it’s not really. While there’s gender symmetry in the choice being represented, the Bible personifies wisdom and folly as two women, not least because its message is couched in terms of a father giving his son some basic guidance – a little insight into navigating one’s way in the world. Some commentators have taken this imagery a shade further and named these female characters as Dame Wisdom and Madam Folly. Join Brian as he explores this imagery in 6 helpful life lessons for today.
