But Where Can Wisdom Be Found? – Daily Inspiration, August 22, 2012

“But where can wisdom be found? Where does understanding dwell? Man does not comprehend its worth; it cannot be found in the land of the living.” Job 28: 12-13

Man understands on his level. His wisdom is his own. Many well-intentioned people will offer you guidance and wisdom during your trials and tribulations. Although they mean well, their understanding is limited. Much like the advice offered to the suffering Job by his friends Eliphaz, Bildad, Zophar and Elihu, human wisdom cannot provide complete answers or comfort. Only God is able to provide us with the endurance, strength, discernment, and peace needed to persevere through life’s inevitable troubles. We don’t have to always reject a sincere friend’s guidance, but the only truth we should accept is God’s. Turn to Him now.

May the Lord be with you.
