The Foolishly Wise…

Read: Job 32-34
Marked: Job 32:9, Great men are not always wise, Nor do the aged always understand justice.

We see people as great because of education, power, or prestige and by these think them wise. But God’s word says, “For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God” (1 Corinthians 3:18a.

When wise men of the world contradict, or dismiss, the word of God they show themselves fools. “The fear of the Lord, that is wisdom” (Job 28:28).

Wisdom has nothing to do with education, power, prestige, or age. It is given by God and learned at His feet through hearing the word of God and acting upon it. Want to be wise? Fear the Lord.
