Scriptural Readings: 1st Corinthians 3:19-20, Romans 1:21-22
There will always be dissatisfaction or discontentment. Make sure about it. Otherwise we will not ask questions and look for better things in our lives. We will always need answers.
Out from curiosity and discontentment rise our questions. Have we ever asked ourselves why in the first place we raised such questions? We know that when we reach dissatisfaction and we have to address this we are going to ask the question why do we have to arrive at this place in our lives over and over again? The next thing and as always and normally we do is turn to our faculty of intelligence once again. This is where the valuable time is wasted because our questions will lead to other questions and therefore we have to be satisfied or otherwise continue to raise questions and look for satisfaction. One thing we know is that when we traced back in our lives from that time when we were looking for answers from the previous questions and finally we got it and the next thing we know is that we have fallen on this course and the cycle goes on. We are trapped in this situation. There could never be satisfaction.
1st Corinthians 3:19-20
v.19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.
v.20 And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.
There is no doubt that we are truly and totally incomplete being and incapable of having satisfaction and truly believing and living the idea to be fitted into a perfect way of living and out from our own finite minds that we look and rely for answers.
We have to be reminded always that even acquiring the highest ability of obtaining answers we will discover at times it will suffice but our uncertainties embedded in us looking for more truth and that even our own lifetime will never reach the satisfaction that we are looking for. What is out there that we rely on wisdom of this world will never ever give us the right and perfect answer. The highest attainable knowledge that humans can be having is not even close to what God is and has.
v. 21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified [him] not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
v. 22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
We have detached ourselves from the original purpose God has for us. Instead of reaching out for Jesus for everything that we need, we concocted our own way to live our lives. We think that guns were made to kill. Yes, it will be utilize to eradicate evil in the society but then again it can be used to kill the innocent. A car can be made in to an ambulance saving humans it could also be use to run away from a crime. We make arguments on these and more seeking and thinking one would be right and the other wrong. We profess we are wise but the truth is we are fools.
We think we know the answer to anything and everything. We theorize hoping the answer is just around the corner. Aside and outside from Jesus there are no possible answers. We will continue to have dissatisfaction and discontentment until we accept the finished work of Jesus Christ at Calvary. Only Jesus can truly give satisfaction and contentment. He will fulfill all God’s promises as soon as we accept Him as Lord and Savior. We will continue to have revelations as soon as we put our full trust and faith in Him. We can now clearly see the difference between our foolish life we are living before and the new life that we have in Jesus Christ.
