READING OF THE DAY: 20 FEBRUARY, 2017

“All wisdom comes from the LORD and with him it remains forever, and is before all time

The sand of the seashore, the drops of rain, the days of eternity: who can number these?

Heaven’s height, earth’s breadth, the depths of the abyss: who can explore these?

Before all things else wisdom was created; and prudent understanding, from eternity.

To whom has wisdom’s root been revealed?

Who knows her subtleties?

There is but one, wise and truly awe-inspiring, seated upon his throne: It is the LORD; he created her, has seen her and taken note of her.

He has poured her forth upon all his works, upon every living thing according to his bounty; he has lavished her upon his friends.

Fear of the LORD is glory and splendour, gladness and a festive crown.

Fear of the LORD warms the heart, giving gladness and joy and length of days.” – Book of Sirach 1:1-10.
