Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

April 01, 2011 (wisdom)


“Human wisdom sometimes sees
the immediate cause of a problem
but it does not see the root,
which is always sin.
It may see that selfishness
is a cause of injustice,
but it has no way to remove selfishness.
It may see that hatred causes misery
and pain and destruction,
but it has no cure for hatred.
It can see plainly that man
does not get along with man,
but it does not see that the real cause
is that man does not get along with God.
Human wisdom cannot see
because it will not see.
As long as it looks on
God's wisdom as foolishness,
its own wisdom will be foolish.
In other words, human wisdom itself
is a basic part of the problem.”
- John MacArthur

“If knowledge comes by study,
wisdom comes by Holy Spirit filling.”
- Oswald Sanders
