Contradictions One-a-Day Wednesday 8/10/22  

A life worthy

As it is written: “He catches the wise in their craftiness,” and again, “The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile.” (1 Corinthians 3:19-20)

Things I’ve seen in this world of ours…  

Demonstrators protesting against angry and hateful rhetoric by burning flags and destroying property…

A woman who preaches tolerance confronting a man because she is offended by his hair style…

Students who claim to promote the First Amendment refusing to let a candidate speak at their school…

A movement that is vehement about protecting a woman’s safety and privacy applauding rules that allow a man to enter a public restroom while a little girl is in there, or a college boy to use a dorm bathroom while women are showering…

The wisdom of Man is derived from and focused on…well…Man.

Man is inherently selfish, unstable, and full of contradictions.

And we wonder why the world is in the shape it’s in?

Beloved, this is not about politics.  It is a reminder of what happens when we substitute our “wisdom” for the wisdom of Almighty God.

Nothing good

Walk in his wisdom today, Beloved.

Happy Wednesday

  1. Wise observation, Michael. Reminds me of a Bible verse that warns against calling good things “bad.” (Do you know the one I’m talking about? I haven’t found it yet.) But today, a lovely voice or amazing talent is being called “bad” or “sick” or “dope.” God help us!

    • Isaiah 5:20-21 “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil; who put darkness for light and light for darkness.” Thank you, Mary!
