What are the most important things to you? What do you value most?
People often value money, fame, or beauty—but these aren’t as valuable as true wisdom. To be able to tell God’s wisdom from the world’s often misguided wisdom, leaders can consult God’s Word. As the all-knowing Creator of the universe, God is the only source of true wisdom. He grants each of us the freedom to choose which wisdom to apply—the world’s or His. It is part of a growing relationship with God to be able to tell the difference between what unbelievers see as wisdom and the true, godly wisdom Paul describes here. What are some things you can do to learn about God’s wisdom?
“Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you seems to be wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, ‘He catches the wise in their own craftiness’; and again, ‘The Lord knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are futile’” (1 Corinthians 3:18-20, NKJV).
