Would Lady Wisdom be allowed to preach in your church?

Our pastor pointed out last week that - throughout the Book of Proverbs - wisdom is personified as a woman. Throughout Proverbs, Lady Wisdom teaches, rebukes, corrects and trains readers in righteousness. Readers are encouraged to listen to her.

What would happen if Lady Wisdom preached at your church this week? Would you listen to her?

Her teaching may sound too common-sensical.
Her teaching may feel disjointed or sharply illustrated.
Her teaching may not be "gospel-centered."
Her teaching may not fit a gendered norm.
Her teaching may seem too application-focused.
Her teaching may remind you of "seeker sensitive" stuff.
Her teaching may change your life.

Will you listen?
