Wisdom is too high for a fool: he openeth not his mouth in the gate.
Today's Morsel: I often wonder why so many folks seem to have a hard time attaining wisdom. If wisdom cries in the streets and in the chief places of the concourses, shouldn't those who pass by reach out to her so that they can become wise? Is wisdom really that high that we cannot reach up and obtain it? Is wisdom that far elevated that we can't take hold of it? Why are there so many that seem to lack wisdom? Solomon said that it (wisdom) is too high for a fool. What would classify one as a fool? Solomon tells us that: He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool (Proverbs 28:16), He that hideth hatred with lying lips, and he that uttereth a slander, is a fool (Proverbs 10:18), One who does mischief, is a fool (Proverbs 10:23), One who is right in his own eyes is a fool (Proverbs 12:15), He that despiseth his father's instruction is a fool (Proverbs 15:5), He that is full of words is a fool (Ecclesiastes 10:14); and King David said that he who says in his heart that there is no God is a fool (Psalm 14:1). So I guess if a person falls into any of these categories, we can see why wisdom would be too high for them to attain. But to the born again believer, nothing shall be impossible for him to attain. As the Lord said, "Open thy mouth wide and I will fill it"
Sing: More! More about Jesus! More! More about Jesus; more of His saving fullness see, more of His love who died for me.
Thought For Today: Wisdom is the principle thing.
