GET WISDOM III
1 Corinthians 8:1b-3 “Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up. The man who thinks he knows something does not yet know as he ought to know. But the man who loves God is known by God.”
The Scene: A stack of books looking like a skyscraper that seemingly reaches to the sky–representing all of mankind’s knowledge.
Man’s knowledge and his worldly wisdom hinder him from living out his life without God’s wisdom to guide him.
Ecclesiastes 12:11-12 ” The words of the wise are like goads, their collected sayings like firmly embedded nails–given by one Shepherd. Be warned, my son, of anything in addition to them. Of making many books there is no end, and much study wearies the body.”
Worldly wisdom & man’s philosophies are the result of worldly book knowledge–such as evolution theory, accepted by many as fact. Likewise, those who believe in false religions, cults and worship idols, are studying information that separates them from God.
Get wisdom! Get Godly wisdom! (Read Chapter 2 of Proverbs: The moral benefits of Wisdom.)
James 1:5 ” If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.”
