SELAH Daily Devotions!
How much better to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver! Proverbs 16:16
Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold. For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it. Proverbs 8:10-11
WOW! We’ve come a long way, Baby!
As far as the ingathering of information and the major technological accomplishments attained by this 21st Century New Millennium Age is concerned, undoubtedly, we’ve taken quantum leaps exceedingly well beyond the realm of possibility to even the most esteemed intellectuals and astute scientific calculus of days gone by.
In other words, (sigh)! It’s safe to say that knowledge abounds!
Unfortunately, the scarcity of wit, wisdom and truth is decisively profound! Generally the appeal for this degree of understanding is left to those few famished, disillusioned, disinfranchised, exhausted, wayfaring scavengers who wander off rush-hour-grid-locked-getting-byways and highways to worldly success and traditional religious rituals. For reasons, yet unknown, somehow some of us are being distinctly drawn to the under-passes, service roads, and trenches; seeking the hidden treasures, riches stored in secret places of The Kingdom of His Presence! (Ref. Isaiah 45:3)
Who knew that we’d be called to the Kingdom for such a time as this? Who knew that before we lived one day that our Master already had a plan, purpose, and a hope-filled destination for our lives?
“It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.” Proverbs 25:2
Wisdom is calling!
“But you have not called upon Me, O Jacob; And you have been weary of Me. O Israel” Isaiah 43:22
“But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.” 1Timothy 6:6-8
“Congratulations! You finally got what you wanted, BUT… lost what you had”!
Didjaheardat? Missed it, huh? WAYFARING WIT!
Pause, Ponder, Pray & Praiz!
