We Think We’re So Smart

Verse of the month
“Hear, you children, the instruction of a father,
and attend to know understanding.”
Proverbs 4:1 

June 22-28, 2016

Scripture Reading: Ecclesiastes 8:16-17 

We Think We’re So Smart

“When I applied my heart to know wisdom, and to see the business done on earth… then I see God’s work, and cannot understand it.” (Ecclesiastes 8:16-17 paraphrased)   

In the hearts and minds of men, all too often there is a feeling of being just “so smart”.  We think we know all there is to know, but in reality, we know very little. 

Our scripture reading tells us that even though a wise man thinks he knows it all, he shall not be able to find out all the Work of God.  So much for being so smart! (see Ecclesiastes 8:16-17) 

“The wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.” (1 Corinthians 3:19) 

As believers we need to focus our energies on the wisdom of God to be gained from reading His Word.  So prove just how smart you really are: get wisdom.  You’ll see there’s still more to be learned. (JW)
