What are we without Wisdom?
Well simply put, nothing. God has always called for his people to be knowledgeable and seek wisdom. Why? Because there are people who are called intellects that are lurking and waiting for you to not know the word of God through and through so that they make you look foolish. However, when you fully know the word of God, they look foolish.
What people like intellects do not understand is that God lives above logic and reason. He doesn’t need it because he is God. It’s one of the things that makes him beautiful.
While us humans try to figure out God, he knows our next seven moves.
In Proverbs 1:5 it says “A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels.”
Basically stating that not only are we as Christians suppose to be knowledgeable but understanding. Understanding that we alone do not know all things and should seek others who have been there and done that.
As a teen, like most, I didn’t want to go to my parents with anything because I thought they wouldn’t understand or they wouldn’t respond the way that I wanted them to and for the most part I was wrong.
Parents have been there and done that, that’s why we are suppose to seek their guidance and their knowledge in order to truly understand our own circumstances so that we make the best and correct decisions in life.
It also says in Proverbs 1:7 that, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Do you have a problem with people in authority over you?
Is it difficult for you to submit to a leader, a husband/wife, or an elder?
That’s not how God intended for us to live.
He intended for us to live in total submission to his wisdom above all else and seek others that he has put in places of authority to guide us into making righteous decisions that please God.
So it’s time for a reality check in all of our lives: Am I a part of the wise or the fools and has God been pleased with my decision lately?
