Day 281: Delight in Mankind

Proverbs 8:30

I was the craftsman at his side. I was filled with delight daily, rejoicing in his presence, rejoicing in his world, and delighting in mankind.


Delight in mankind.

This is a remarkable statement that Wisdom is speaking concerning God’s creation – especially delighting in mankind. That’s a contrast from what we mainly hear regarding mankind. Most of us struggle with delighting in mankind these days.

We should stop listening to the evil reports and read some good reports regarding mankind. It’s easy for us to become calloused and cynical regarding humanity. But there is some good out there – let’s keep our eyes open and acknowledge it when we see it.

Look at it this way – when you have finished a project, maybe you’re a craftsman and can create something with your hands. Have you ever stepped back, looked it over, and admired it – perhaps even delighted in it? That’s what Wisdom does concerning the work of God – especially mankind.
