Do all of this, and then — only then — you will understand
The world and many in Christ are stupid. So says Prov 2.1-5. When our people can sing worldly lyrics all day long, but have trouble coming up with one or two verses by memory, according to Solomon, they are stupid.
My child, if you receive my words,
and store up my commands within you,
by making your ear attentive to wisdom,
and by turning your heart to understanding,
indeed, if you call out for discernment—
raise your voice for understanding—
if you seek it like silver,
and search for it like hidden treasure,
then you will understand how to fear the Lord,
and you will discover knowledge about God.
Do you see this happening among us? With some, yes. With many others, it is not. These are seeking other things, and it shows.
Don’t be stupid. Make a scene and get wisdom. Be a mental hoarder of the word of God. Be obvious about knowing Christ. Make fearing the Lord your absolute and only priority.
Only by doing all of this will we get a handle on what it means to be a Christian.
