Knowledge: Foolish Or Wise

Lent: Day 6 – To those who claim to know a little bit about everything, does that include your knowledge of Christ? If so, where does that really place you in the larger scheme of things, among the foolish or the wise? Consider the eleven sons of Israel (Jacob), who thought they knew God’s plan for their lives, without realizing their devious participation in their own destiny. Ponder the first four disciples Jesus called to follow him. They were fisherman, who as Mark tells us, left the one thing they knew in depth, to pursue the one thing they knew only as a promise through scripture. However great or small, what ever we know about God through Christ, must take precedence over everything we think we know in this world. God’s word not only has power, it has ultimate authority. Our knowledge is challenged everyday. Do we have the courage to accept what we know about God in Christ, great or small, and allow that knowledge to lead in every situation of our lives? Do we have the courage to believe that surely God’s plan for our life throughout this journey is far greater than anything we could foolishly or wisely design for our selves? Perhaps, now is the time to increase that knowledge of Him, for no plan is greater than God’s plan.

Genesis 37:12-24  So when Joseph came to his brothers, they stripped him of his robe, …and they took him and threw him into a pit.

Mark 1:14-28  And immediately they left their nets and followed him.

1 Corinthians 1:20-31  Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? ‘Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.’

Psalm 47 For the Lord, the Most High, is awesome, a great king over all the earth.
