Biblical Wisdom Wednesday for Common Questions of Life
Proverbs 3:21-24 (KJB) My son, let not them depart from thine eyes: keep sound wisdom and discretion: 22 So shall they be life unto thy soul, and grace to thy neck.
Is there a difference between “Common sense” and “God sense”?
The book of Proverbs has a great deal of wisdom and knowledge that every person should understand and desire to apply to his or her life. It was divinely written and recorded by King Solomon for molding and maturing his son.
The good news is that it continues to mold and mature believers with softened hearts turned towards God today. A lost person cannot read the Bible and receive any spiritual instruction or gain for he or she is unable to discern and apply truths of God.
However, a child of God will desire to read and apply teachings and truths of God. God’s Truths will do a divine work in the heart and sink in to fill the many cracks and crevices found outwardly to beautify and adorn the exterior life of a Christian as he or she walks with the light of God shining through the dark and evil world.
The truth is there is much common, or “worldly sense” but a great lack of “God sense” at work in this world.
Each child of God is a “spiritual billboard” for the divine purpose of mirroring “God sense” in his or her heart and life. Having this at work in a softened heart can eternally benefit lost people relying upon “common sense” and in desperate need of a personal relationship with God.
