Unrequited Wisdom

May 30, 2010


Though a fool hast more followers than a wise man tis best to be wise nonetheless. – An ancient proverb just written by St Ron the Baptist. 😉

One of the more irksome things that I have experienced in my life is people telling me how smart I am or what a great teacher/preacher I am but then they do not use the “wisdom” they asked for and I gave praising God I even had any or they never show up for Sunday School or Church. I would hate to think they were liars or flatterers but what’s up with that?

In a small way, I think I understand how God feels. We pay Him all sorts of compliments but when we need help or get into a tough situation we refuse to heed what He says and want to be Frank Sinatra’s and do it our way. Is it any wonder that Christians and the Church is in deep doo-doo?

Prov 1:22-31

22 How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?

23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.

24 Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;

25 But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:

26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;

27 When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.

28 Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:

29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD:

30 They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.

31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.
KJV
