Not until we have become humble and teachable, standing in awe of God’s holiness and sovereignty… acknowledging our own littleness, distrusting our own thoughts, and willing to have our minds turned upside down, can divine wisdom become ours.
We won’t get far in life without wisdom and common sense. And we see that both are gifts of God and that God Himself uses them. Yet so often, we find ourselves doing anything but listening. Wisdom is available and calling to us from everywhere. (Proverbs 1:20-21) But often, we’re either not paying attention or ignoring her in favour of our ill-considered choices. However, wisdom is a companion of God, and he has offered this companion to us. It is worth our time to consider the ways in which we continue to ignore her.
Sin will not come to you saying, “I am sin.” It would do little harm if it did. Sin always seems good and pleasant and desirable at the time of commission. Oh Get wisdom! Get discernment
No man is uneducated who knows the Bible, and no one is wise who is ignorant of its teachings.
