"How do ye say, We are wise,
and the law of the LORD
is with us?
Lo, certainly in vain made he it;
the pen of the scribes is in vain.
The wise men are ashamed,
they are dismayed and taken:
lo, they have rejected the word of the LORD;
and what wisdom is in them."
Jeremiah 8:8,9
How Does God See Us?
"Wisdom" may best describe our present scientific and cultural plateau, yet spiritually we are foolish indeed.
Many people, seen as wise in the eyes of the world,
are fools in the eyes of our Lord.
The atheist who audaciously affirms,
"I know there is no God,"
is elevated upon the pedestal of intellectualism
and wisdom by the world of pseudo-science,
yet God calls him a fool (Psalm 14:1).
Humanists, who deny the existence of sin,
and contend that one's conduct should best be determined
by circumstances in which they find themselves,
are applauded and lauded as the wise one's of our age.
God, in no uncertain terms, has said,
"Fools make a mock at sin" (Proverbs 14:9).
The world cries out,
"Do what makes you feel good; do your own thing!"
God has decreed,
"He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool"
(Proverbs 28:26)
The rich farmer in the twelfth chapter of Luke,
who found comfort in his accumulation of worldly goods,
would be seen by many among us today as a wise man indeed.
God called him a fool!
How does God see us, my friend?
Our nation seems to be floating with the tide of moral
and spiritual corruption.
Are we drifting with the tide?
Or are we willing to stem the tide?
I would rather be a fool in the eyes of a foolish world,
than a fool in the eyes of my all-wise Creator!
How about you?
The mere handling of God's Word is no guarantee
of spiritual fidelity.
The Word must master you and become part of your life.
