Do Not Be Wise in Your Own Eyes

God warns us not to be wise in our own eyes.  We’re asking for trouble when we ignore such instruction.

At our best, we are like little children before Him.  We may have been made in His image but we have a lot of growing to do.  In the meantime, it is best that we stay humble and recognize that there is a lot more going on in creation than what meets the eye. 

Faith (or in other words, trust) is an essential component of living…precisely because we don’t know it all.  If we did, what reason would there be to trust? 

There are times when it will not seem wise to you to trust the Lord.  Trust Him anyway.  There will be times when it will not seem wise to you to obey His commandments.  Obey them anyway.  At every opportunity to either follow the Lord or do what seems wise in your own eyes, follow the Lord.

God knows best.  We do not.  The sooner we repent and acknowledge this truth, the sooner we can stop banging our heads against reality.  Talk to Him today as if He knows everything…and you don’t.

The purpose of this blog is to provide information about Jesus to those who want to hear about Him without having to join something.
