God made me before anything else: Sophia, Holy Wisdom. I was brought into being a long time ago, well before Earth got its start. I arrived before Ocean rolled and roared; before Mountain was sculpted; long before God set Sky firmly in place.
Day after day, I was there with my joyful applause, always enjoying God’s company, delighting in the world of creatures, cheering for the whole human family.
So, my dear friends, listen carefully. I have only this to say: don't squander your precious life. Stay awake. Be ready to meet me every morning as I start my day's work. + Proverbs 8
Tell us: what helps keep you ready to meet Sophia, God’s Holy Wisdom?
