Proverbs 29:18, 30:1-6 and 11-14
Pastor Alex Robinson
Not all wisdom is created equal; true wisdom comes from God’s Word.
These verses we looked at today are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the Bible’s affirmation of itself as the source of God’s wisdom for man. Psalm 119 is the longest chapter in the Bible, and every single verse is about the power, beauty, and benefit of God’s Word for us. 2 Timothy 3:10-17 tells us that not only is Scripture breathed out by God but that it is useful for things like correction, growth, rebuke, wisdom for salvation, and leading us to be complete followers of Jesus. Hebrews 4:12 compares it to a two-edged sword that penetrates through all of our pretense to the true thoughts and intentions of our heart. We live in a world that is desperately trying to define its own identity and set its own boundaries if not remove boundaries all together. But we have ready access to God’s time tested and proven wisdom that teaches us about those things. And the result of learning from God is an understand of who God is, who we are, and how we are called to live in order to bring about God’s will and our ultimate joy and happiness.
