The Praise of God

Click here for the audio version

If it were by any means possible for the Almighty to exhibit any measure of foolishness, Paul the Apostle tells us at First Corinthians One that the foolishness of God would still be wiser than men. James One tells us that Go is willing to share with us a measure of His wisdom. However, Solomon observed at Ecclesiastes One that the gaining of wisdom is accompanied by grief and sorrow. It is by spiritual wisdom that the carnal imperfections of the world become more evident to us. Further, the carnally minded refuse the spiritual wisdom of godly people and turn them away who would offer it. The world may acknowledge the child of God to be superior in lesser meaningful ways, but rarely will the wisdom of God as evident in a man be acknowledged among the worldly as superior to the foolishness of men. Ideally, any resulting loss should be regarded as insignificant anyway, for one must not love the praise of men more than the praise of God.
