Re:Verse reading–1 Corinthians 1:18-25 (day six)
All good things come from above. Hebrews 1:17
True wisdom isn’t home grown, it’s a gift given from above. The homegrown kind isn’t wisdom, it’s hubris. That’s the kind of wisdom some in the Corinthian church were dealing, self-exalting, division causing hubris.
Godly wisdom leads to peace and unity, not a fractured church. It brings people together; it doesn’t push people away. This is why the simplicity and the foolishness of the Gospel is the greatest gift of godly wisdom. It does what our hubris could never do.
We know we are living by the wisdom of God when the kind of Gospel we live (and tell others)results in the tearing down of walls, not building them.
