Seek His Wisdom
For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice (James 3:16).
The moment Adam and Eve turned from God in the Garden of Eden and tried to put something else in His place, we began a downward spiral that continues today. In that moment, they turned from God’s wisdom and began self-reliance on earthly knowledge. We have been struggling with the devastating results ever since.
Earthly knowledge comes from looking around. When we look around more than we look up, we begin to find ourselves envious of what others have, do, or know. As we read today, the result of seeking earthly knowledge over godly wisdom is disorder. The reason is that man’s ‘wisdom’ leads us nowhere, while God’s wisdom leads us to eternity. Which direction are you heading in today?
Thank God for His wisdom. In humility, ask Him to reveal His wisdom to you so that you can discover the right path in your life.
For a look at the path that godly wisdom can set you on, read Proverbs 4:5-9.
