True Wisdom Comes Only From God


Daily Bible Reading – Job 28, 29; Galatians 1, 2

Today’s Key Passage – Job 28:20-28

People look for wisdom in strange places.  Some people seek wisdom from listening to people they respect.  Some seek wisdom from reading ancient philosophers. Others read self-help books or go to self-help seminars.  The problem with all of these things is the source.  Every leader, philosopher, author (myself included), and speaker have one thing in common – they are human.

After listening intently to his friends opinions about his current plight, Job understood the problem with human knowledge.  He understood that, though his friends meant well, they did not really have the wisdom they thought they had.  Because they were human, their wisdom was inherently flawed.

No single person or group of people can gain enough experience, knowledge, or insight to understand the totality of the human race.  A true understanding of everyone and everything, also known as wisdom, can only come from one source – God.  God’s wisdom is revealed to us through His Word and through prayer.  We can certainly gain some insight and knowledge by reading and having conversations with other people, but to truly gain wisdom we must seek it from God alone.  Ask Him for wisdom today, and He will surely provide.
