Jeremiah 9:23 Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches:
It would almost seem as if the prophet Jeremiah was writing these words to the people of today. In the technological society we live in, education seems to be the benchmark of success. Yet all our wisdom seems to cause us to need more wisdom to continuously compete. One benefit derived from all this wisdom, it has brought us to a day and age where people live longer. Health and exercise have taken front row in the minds of many today. If we live healthier and wiser we live longer and can get more things, more wealth. Still, at the end of it all, our health does seem to fail us. No matter how well we have taken care to do all we can, this body begins to break down. The relevant wisdom we had 20 years ago, has become obsolete. Microchips replaced transistors; MP3’s have taken over CD’s. Time marches on. The money we saved over a lifetime, isn’t as valuable as it once was. In fact, it costs everything we have just to live.
Man’s wisdom, might, and money will someday all fail him. Yet, one type of wisdom never fails. Understanding that God is the owner of all there is in heaven and earth. That He not only supplies all our needs, but also supplies things above our needs at His discretion. Our main role in life is to continuously look to Him for guidance and trust Him to supply. If you were wise enough to accept Christ as Saviour, Jesus never fails. Real wisdom finds its strength and wealth in Jesus
In a hymn we sing it says; “Jesus never fails, Jesus never fails, heaven and earth may pass away, but Jesus never fails.” How long is never? For Jesus never is forever. Jesus will be yours for eternity.
Education, Strength, Money, or God. Which do you think is more reliable?
