Scripture Reading: Psalms 49:7-14
Scripture Quote: Wisdom shouts in the streets wherever crowds gather. She shouts in the marketplaces and near the city gates as she says to the people, "How much longer will you enjoy being stupid fools? Won't you ever stop sneering and laughing at knowledge? Proverbs 1:20-22 CEV
Christians can sometimes feel aimless and uncommitted, making many mistakes, or be frozen, afraid to make any mistakes - Either way, we can be unsure of ourselves. Maybe we have been followers of the crowd, timidly accepting the prevailing opinion. Conversely, when we are fixed in our opinions and want nothing new in our lives to change us, we are foolish and unteachable. We might hold a certain belief that has become comfortable and we'd rather no one challenges it. At times we may have all been there - Able to relate to human foolishness.
There comes a time in life when we have to evaluate our beliefs. Christian faith demands that we believe every word that God has inspired. Maturity does come with a cost. We do have to be willing to confess our weak thinking and ask God to renew us with His Word. Of course that is supposing that we read His Word and know where we need to make changes and ask for help. We can take a serious look at each thing in our life that hinders our spiritual growth. One at a time, we can unload our foolish beliefs at Jesus’ feet. He will help us become Believers who increase in wisdom as we grow closer to His heart.
