Proverbs 9:1-6

1 Wisdom has built her house; she has hewn her seven pillars.
2 She has slaughtered her beasts; she has mixed her wine; she has also set her table.
3 She has sent out her young women to call from the highest places in the town,
4 "Whoever is simple, let him turn in here!" To him who lacks sense she says,
5 "Come, eat of my bread and drink of the wine I have mixed.
6 Leave your simple ways, and live, and walk in the way of insight."

This is a greets invitation. Food, wine, and simple enough for the simple to get it. There are many complicated things in this life, but wisdom clearly demonstrates that there see also clear simple things too.

Too often we confuse ourselves or others confuse us by making things overly complicated. This is a trick. Do what you can to understand what you can and make that clear to others. Acknowledge where things are grey and you are not sure, nothing wrong with that. Too often I feel taken advantage by others with complicated arguments, I feel that somehow they are just smarter than me and I am the one lacking wisdom. While sometimes the case, often it is not. Stick to the simple things of God, do them, and you will see.
