2017 – THURSDAY 2 FEBRUARY
We are considering the elements of wisdom shown by spiritually mature people.
1 Corinthians 2:6-16
THE WISDOM OF THE WORLD ALWAYS COMES TO NOTHING.
“yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing.”
“Do not envy the rich, or those who, for a moment, wield great power – consider their end. They fade and disappear like the grass of the field.”
The wisdom of the world is smart, cunning, often deceitful and always self focused.
It may for a season bring about its desired end, but it is always flawed because it exhibits the two obsessions of selfish pride.
RIGHTS AND PRIVILEGES.
If you are living to fulfil these two outcomes then you are spiritually immature, even if you are considered worldly wise.
Spiritual wisdom begins with the fear of the Lord.
The fear of the Lord always leads to surrender.
All rights and all privileges, are to be brought to the foot of the cross and yielded to the perfect will of the one who gave His all for us.
GET SMART – is the mantra of the world.
GET WISE – is the mantra of the spiritually mature.
WISDOM KNOWS THE POWER OF SURRENDER TO GOD
He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep – to gain what he cannot lose.
