Two types of Wisdom; it matters which one you choose
Greg, John and Pat discuss the two types of wisdom and the importance of choosing the right one in your life. They continue to share that there is an earthly wisdom and a heavenly wisdom. When we give ourselves to earthly wisdom instead of heavenly wisdom we find all sorts of disorder in marriages, families, ministry, etc… Godly wisdom is pure, peaceful, considerate and submissive. We are going to have to trust God in people. We mustn’t control people but allow the Holy Spirit to lead them. Allow people to leave you. Let go of the control. If you can’t bring order into your life you need heavenly wisdom.
It ain’t over till God says it’s over
With all the negative news about the economy and the direction of our nation and world, Greg shares about how this is when God does His best work. This is when God delivers His people who turn to Him and trust in Him. When people and circumstances say it’s over we know it ain’t till God says it’s over.
Gloating over the fall of your enemy?
In this moment of wisdom found in Proverbs 24:17-18,
“Don’t gloat when your enemy falls; when he stumbles, do not let your heart rejoice, or The Lord will see and disapprove and turn His wrath away from him.” First we learn that we can have enemies. Proverbs 25:21-22, Solomon Said “If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat; if he is thirsty, give him water to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head, and the Lord will reward you.” We are not to take revenge but allow God to judge and bring justice. Justice is best left in the hands of God who is just and the one who justifies. It’s important to respond to our enemies as Jesus tells us to respond to them. Jesus tells us to love our enemies and to do good to those who mistreat us. In Romans 5:8 we learn, “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Seeing how God loved us when we were His enemies we can see that Jesus is not asking us to do what He Himself hasn’t demonstrated to us.
