Message that opposes the world’s message!

Proverbs 28:26 tells us that “Whoever trusts in his own mind is a fool, but he who walks in wisdom will be delivered.”*

Is that a worldly message? No, because the world says “trust yourself” and “trust your feelings” and “you do what you think is right.” Well, my problem with that is, what if someone thinks it’s right to be a pedophile and they feel attracted to a young child by their “feelings”? Should they trust themselves, their feelings, and what they think is right?

No, of course not. And the Bible knows this to be true of unregenerated mankind!

In fact, the Bible gives us the “thing” to trust in – “wisdom” which only comes from God above and we get it from His Word and His Spirit.

So let’s think like God thinks and be like Christ who rejected the “worldly wisdom” offered Him in Matthew 4 by Satan and lived by God’s wisdom alone.

I think Christ did pretty well, don’t you?
