Job 28:1-30:31;  2 Corinthians 2:12-17;  Psalm 42:1-11;  Proverbs 22:7

“Where does wisdom come from?

Where does understanding dwell?

It is hidden from the eyes of every

living thing,

concealed  even from the birds

of the air.

Death and Destruction say,

‘Only rumor of it has reached our ears.’

God understands the way to it

and he alone knows where it dwells,

for he views the ends of the earth

and sees everything under the heavens.

When he established the force of the wind

and measured out the waters,

when he made a decree for the rain

and a path for the thunderstorm,

then he looked at wisdom and appraised it;

he confirmed it and tested it.

And he said to man,

“The fear of the Lord–that is wisdom,

and to shun evil is understanding.”

Job 28:20-28

 

The beginning and the end

of all wisdom

is found

in the Triune God-

Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

Creator,

Redeemer,

Sanctifier.

Rumors may fly

of  a better wisdom,

but like Death and Destruction

the end of it

is only the beginning

of an endless search

for truth.

“And because of him you are in Christ Jesus,

who became to us wisdom from God,

righteousness and sanctification

and redemption.”

1 Corinthians 1:30

Lord God, we thank and praise you that we need not be swayed by rumors of a “better” wisdom–that we can be confident that through faith we have the ultimate wisdom within us.  We have Jesus our Lord and Savior, Life giver and Life sustainer.  Forgive us when our itching ears seek out a different wisdom–one that caters to worldy desires.  For Jesus’ sake, Amen.
