Knowledge and understanding confront the reality of life in the face of wisdom
|Understanding is a shared and filtered entity; to each is his understanding of life’s puzzles and outcomes. The calculus is like this: Our transgressions are multiplied and our sins divide us. We may be added to the works of the righteous if we change unto righteousness in the effort of subtracting sin.
We seek health and strength, peace and happiness to quench the thirst of life. To live for Christ is gain but to sin is the greatest lost. Aging is seemingly the worst enemy of life; so we have to maintain good health and continue to feed our physical, mental and spiritual being. Sickness is more like failure in the progress of life. It is like a recess subtracting valuable time from life’s progress.
Knowledge is the ground work and may be a variable to teaching. “But where shall wisdom be found?” (Job 28:12)
Wisdom grows when there is confidence in the word, when there is purity in thought, when there is conviction and faith in service but more so when there is fear of the Lord. Man will always search out knowledge to seek wisdom but what is life if there is no reverence to God? For the righteous, death is a medium of transition but for the ungodly persons, destruction is liken to a game that is lost. A disregard of righteousness lends itself to unruliness, foolishness, and sinfulness.
We are eager to ask for the blessings of God for us to prosper. We are eager to receive kindness, we are eager to reap but are we eager to sow the seed of service? Where is the seed that we sow? Though we recognize the release of conscious reality, the smart intellectual reasoning and sober action we however need to bring God in everything we do. So we are not just to be ‘head-smart’ but we should be ‘God-smart’.
The creator cannot be seen but He is seen through those whom He has created. We know that we were created exclusively for variance: we socialize, we work, we play, we do parenting, we console each other, we argue, we pray, we live and should serve and worship the Almighty God wholeheartedly. We will go through persecution but I say, be rooted and be firm in Christ because this is how we will be tested ...'our strength in Christ.'
