Wisdom for the Wise
There is nothing worse than a know-it-all. Okay, that’s probably not true, but they are still annoying. In yesterday’s devotion, we talked about humility and that’s where we are again today. It’s okay to expand your knowledge and learn as much as you can, but you should do it knowing there is always more to learn. And just because you’re wise, doesn’t make you better than someone else who isn’t as knowledgeable.
Today’s verse says that there is more hope for a fool than for someone who is wise in his own eyes. The problem is that when we think we are the cream-of-the-crop, we forget our need for a savior. If we think we have it all figured out, we don’t leave room for the Holy Spirit to speak into our hearts and lives. That’s the danger of being wise in our own eyes. It’s not that wisdom is bad, but that on our own, we could never know it all. All of our wisdom comes from God.
1 Corinthians says this, “For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.” We can’t see the whole picture here on earth, but when we get to heaven we’ll learn so much of what we could never know now.
