"That's What I Think"

How Different God's Wisdom From Ours!
I was reading Proverbs, Chapter 8 this morning. The Spirit of God instructs us there in the importance of God's wisdom. The difference between what He considers wisdom and the "wisdom" of humankind is blaring!
God says, "Having God's wisdom is far more important than vast wealth". Humanity says, "Above all else, gain wealth". Further, they say, "Those who are wealthy are wise". You might ask, "Why do you say that?" To me it's obvious. Having lived some 75 years now, my observation of church life has been that leadership is not often taken from the spiritually wise, those who are sold out to God. No, it seems to me (obviously, there are always exceptions) that normally it's the business and professional elite, those who are financially well off, who are chosen. My further observation is that the "spiritually wise" and the "elite" are quite often not the same.
God's spirit goes on to say, "Choose (God's) wisdom, because it produces durable riches and righteousness". This world's wealth vanishes. The wealth gained from God's wisdom lasts forever.
Consider the following questions:
1. How much time have you devoted to preparing for this life?
2. How long will you live?
3. How much time have you devoted to preparing for eternity?
4. How long will you be in eternity?
We don't have much of God's wisdom, do we?
Proverbs 8:5 says, "O ye simple, understand wisdom: And, ye fools, be ye of an understanding heart".
Let us all take heed, not only with our minds, but with the commitment of our lives!
Maranatha! The Lord Jesus is soon coming for His own, very soon! Rejoice, assuming you are one of God's people! If you are not, please give your life to Him today before it is too late! You'll be so glad you did!
These editorials will not always be a daily product. However, as I am able I will endeavor to bring to writ my reflections on society.
Have the best day you have ever had and may they get progressively better every day hereafter!
