How often do we ask for the world’s wisdom instead of looking for answers in the Word of God first? We know that we are in this world but not of it — so why do we think that the way of this world would work in our lives?
I love to read Ecclesiastes. In fact, I’m reading through it again and again and cannot get enough of it. In the beginning it didn’t make much sense to me. I avoided it for a long time until I grasped its meaning:
Life under the sun (without God) vs. Life with the Son (Jesus Christ)
Long before reading Ecclesiastes, though, I started wondering about The Wisdom of This World. I asked myself if there really is some common sense to it. All too often, during my younger days, I looked to the world’s resources for answers; just to find out later on in life that its answers had changed or that I had been fooled by a lie.
Since becoming a Christian have you ever felt that way, too? Have you ever noticed how totally opposite the world’s advice is compared to God’s Word?
That’s what Wednesday Wisdom posts will be about:
The Wisdom of this World vs. The Wisdom of the Word
Besides the regular posts (Monday and Friday), I’m not planning on posting every Wednesday from now on. However, this can change alongside writing my book about this topic. So, stay tuned 😉 First post up next Wednesday: SALT.
