Use wisdom in times of foolishness
Colossians 4:5 - Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time.
Man has the natural tendency to hebetate according to his habitat. Due to which he also tends to act like a fool when surrounded by foolish people doing foolish things.
Some may disagree with me on this. But when you see closely you will see people tend to adopt traditions, styles, attitudes etc. of people wherein they are living. They do not question or try to understand the reasons, roots of or causes due to which these traditions etc. came into being, yet they will adopt them just to be accepted by society.
Today's message is not only about what we have been doing since past but also about the new ways of life we have now come out with or will come out with as solutions to our problems. The Lord is telling us to use wisdom at these times. Only when we study the Word of God and educate ourselves about the times will we be able to discern them and use the wisdom God has given us to overcome.
Open any news paper in any part of the world and I am sure you will find some or the other shocking news of how people are getting at each other or trying to find answers to their problems.
Let us believers of the true God, walking in light discern these times and the foolishness of man. Let us be led by the Spirit of God using the knowledge and wisdom given by the Lord.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Father God, You have given us the Word, which is an instruction manual to us for our salvation. Help us Lord to study and meditate on it and be led by your Spirit so that we may save ourselves and not be victims to calamity and vanity. We ask this in Jesus' Name, Amen.
|The Word of God was given free to us, therefore we should also share it freely with others.
