1 Corinthians 1
“Where is the wise person? Where is the teacher of the law? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?” When I read that statement from Paul I thought of so many conversations I have had with people who just don’t get it when I share with them about spiritual things. They frame their world on the wisdom they learned in school and anything outside of that framework is just foolishness. The sad reality is, that there seems to be a whole generation today that can only see their world in the framework of “worldly wisdom.” The same was true in Paul’s day – those who were highly educated in his day were having greater difficulties seeing the world through a spiritual framework and because of that they missed out on true life and wisdom! Education is very important, but it must not be our god! It is sad, but for many today “world wisdom” has become their idol!!
