Today’s reading: Job 28:28
Where does wisdom come from?
We read in Job 28:28:
28 And to man He said,
‘Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom,
And to depart from evil is understanding.’
Throughout Job 28, Job explained how men have the right knowledge and technology to search out precious stones and metals.
However, if it is wisdom that they’re looking for, they won’t be able to find it in the deep or in the sea. You can’t even buy wisdom or make it equivalent to precious stones.
Thus, Job concluded his great discourse with an important principle we all should take into heart:
To be wise is to fear Yahweh and wisdom is shown in a life that departs from evil.
This tells us that true wisdom can only come from the revelation of God. You can’t have this type of wisdom without having the right relationship with our Creator.
No wonder a lot of people today became foolish in their thinking. Our secular society has lost even its common sense. They can’t even differentiate men from women, know when life begins in the womb, greatly fear a common cold, and so much more.
Because they don’t fear God anymore. They don’t even want God in their lives.
When we reject God as an individual or as a society, we begin to make foolish decisions. We begin to suffer from a lack of wisdom.
So, if you want to be wise, fear God. If you want to gain understanding, depart from evil.
