Week 14 Thursday

Who Knows?

Today’s scripture selection: Job 27-28

Key verses: Job 28:20-24

 

     We’re all looking for answers.

     Even the most self-confident, well-educated among us needs to learn – that is if they are to progress and not stagnate in life.  And even those who are forced by circumstances to just “survive” every day – well, they need to constantly learn new ways of doing that.  So the search for wisdom – at many different levels – is universal.

     That’s why I’m intrigued by what a suffering man named Job had to say about the subject.

     Overcome by grief and adversity; attacked and criticized by others – what was Job’s answer to the question of how one finds wisdom in life?  Simple: He said God knows.

     “Where then does wisdom come from?

    Where does understanding dwell?

 It is hidden from the eyes of every living thing,

    concealed even from the birds in the sky.

 Destruction and Death say,

    ‘Only a rumor of it has reached our ears.’

 God understands the way to it

    and he alone knows where it dwells,

 for he views the ends of the earth

    and sees everything under the heavens.”

 

And how does God lovingly communicate this essential wisdom to his children?  By His word – found in the Bible.

It’s not a new idea.  It’s nothing novel.  In fact, it’s been around a long time.

Do you need to know what really matters?

Open your Bible and start reading – it’s all right there.

 

Prayer:  Lord, thank you for sharing your eternal wisdom with me through your Word.  AMEN.
