OBEYING GOD IS WISDOM
Matt 7:24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
Wisdom is neither in the complexities of the philosopher, nor in the practicalities of the worldly shrewd, these the Bible says are “enticing words of man’s wisdom”. Wisdom is to be found only in God, and If anyone desires to be wise he must obey God. There is no other way to embark on the path of wisdom.
Wisdom is obedience. Wisdom is doing and not just hearing. To honour your father and mother is wisdom. To not covet is wisdom. To forsake wrath is wisdom. To not fornicate is wisdom. To love your God with all of your heart is wisdom. In the pursuit of loving God with all of your heart you might probably lose everything, including your life, but that is wisdom, for that is the only way we can find life, eternal life.Matt 16:25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.
To be a preacher, a teacher, a moraliser, a philosopher and so on is everyone’s cup of tea but to be a “doer’ is to identify with our father in heaven.
May we all be less of a preacher, a teacher , a moraliser, a philosopher and more of a doer.
