True Wisdom

True WisdomWeek 25 of Called and Created’s Bible Reading and Memorization Plan is drawing to a close. This week’s reading was
1 Corinthians 2-6. These chapters continue one of Paul’s epistles to the church at Corinth.

1 Corinthians 3:18-19 states that if we think we are wise by the standards of this age, we should become “fools,” in order to actually become wise. It goes on to state that the world’s wisdom is foolishness in God’s sight.

The world has many mindsets and ways of doing things that are considered wise by a majority of people, that really end in disaster and heartache. Many follow the wisdom of the world, only to end up at a destination that is not what they had in mind. They discover that the world’s wisdom truly is foolishness.

The only true wisdom is the wisdom of God, which He gives liberally and without reproach to all who ask (James 1:5). When we do things His way, we may appear foolish to others, but in reality, we are saving ourselves from the problems that arise when we follow the world’s foolishness as if it were wisdom.

Let’s resolve to seek after true wisdom – the wisdom of God, which He is more than willing to give us – rather than following the wisdom (or rather foolishness) of the world. Let’s do things His way!
