Our Responsibility to God

Proverbs 1:23 (KJB) Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.

The last article that I wrote we called “Just Say No!” is a fantastic precept for all of us regardless of age or maturity to learn. Let’s briefly look at some of the thoughts towards the end of that article that had to do with “Our ...

The Quest for Wisdom

The Quest for Wisdom

Colossians 2:8 (KJB) Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

Many people are busy searching for real wisdom.  The problem is they are seeking to find it in things of this world rather than understanding that actual lasting knowledge only comes from God.  Instead of seeking God, many people pursue questions and influences based in this world. 

Such a quest for wisdom ...

True Wisdom Does Not Require A Degree

James 3:15-17 (KJB) This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. 16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. 17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

In the verses just before these above, James was referring to the characteristics of earthly wisdom.  He continues by describing the character of ...

Sincere Wisdom Does Not Muddle but is Merciful

James 3:16-17 (KJB) For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. 17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

Wisdom from above is supernatural, or above that naturally found at work in this world.  Genuine understanding is pure and spiritually perceptive and only found inside a personal relationship with God and separated apart from confusion, ...

The Wisdom of Job

Job 27:8 (KJB) For what is the hope of the hypocrite, though he hath gained, when God taketh away his soul?

Here is another powerful statement which was given by a person who lived life to the fullest with God.  This man Job placed his trust in God, despite his circumstances in this world.  Job’s life did not involve petty spiritual issues or lightweight conditions and quite frankly, his life became very miserable and bleak in losing most ...

At Your Wits End Is God

At Your Wits End Is God

Proverbs 1:7 (KJB) The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

A “know-it-all” in this world knows nothing about the wisdom and understanding of God.  Instead, he or she knows about things of this world which often stand in opposition to the will and way of God.  This is foolish living.

On the other hand, a spiritually humble person is ready and willing to learn of God.  ...

Wisdom, A Godly Inheritance

Ecclesiastes 7:10-12 (KJB) Say not thou, What is the cause that the former days were better than these? for thou dost not inquire wisely concerning this. 11 Wisdom is good with an inheritance: and by it there is profit to them that see the sun. 12 For wisdom is a defence, and money is a defence: but the excellency of knowledge is, that wisdom giveth life to them that have it.

There are two kinds of ...
