Wisdom

Wisdom and Understanding According to God

IMG_8964

No amount of effort will yield God’s wisdom.  It can’t be valued or found in the world (vv. 13,14).  It can’t be bought for any price (vv. 15-19).  The living can’t find it (v. 21), and neither can the dead (v. 22).  One must revere God and turn from sin, and trust and obey.

Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Job 28:12,20 and 28:28.

A brief life

Evaluate the use of time in light of the brevity of life.  

Wisdom repudiates autonomy and focuses on the Lord’s sovereignty and revelation.

Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Psalm 90:12.

One Savior

“Let not the wise man glory in his

wisdom,

Let not the mighty man glory in his

might,

Nor let the rich man glory in his

riches;

But let him who glories glory in

this,

The he understands and knows

Me,

That I am the Lord, exercising

lovingkindness, judgement,

and righteousness in the

earth.

For in these I delight,” says the

Lord.

Jeremiah 9:23-24
