It Would Be Humorous
| Some things would
actually be funny if they were not so serious. When you consider how the
"wise" people of the world present themselves as being so much
smarter than God, there is a sadness and sympathy toward them but also a
disgust. People never show themselves more foolish than to challenge the
wisdom of God and think they know better.
Paul wrote, "The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain. Therefore let no man glory in men" (First Corinthians 3:21, 22). Actually the "wise" mentioned here are not truly wise but just think they are. They are vain, empty, worthless and useless.
So many are deceived in looking to the "wise" of this world rather than God. They are following what is vain. Christians follow true wisdom; God's wisdom.
