Wise But So Unwise

  Someone has said you are either wise or otherwise. Solomon is supposed to have been a man who excelled in wisdom. Yet he did some of the most foolish things a man could do. His failure to obey the commandments of God proved him to be unwise. Jesus taught the difference between wisdom and foolishness in terms of obedience and disobedience. On that scale, though Solomon had great wisdom in some things, he really showed how unwise he was.

  We can learn from Solomon if we will. Of course, many will not even consider the lessons taught. But when we choose to obey the Lord we show wisdom. Regardless of whatever else we may say and do, if we disobey God we are foolish and that foolishness will show itself in the judgment if not sooner.
