Earthly Wisdom vs. Godly Wisdom

RT Dr. David Jeremiah / Turning Point

Wisdom from Above

But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.
James 3:17

Proverbs 2:1-6

We have become a society obsessed with all-natural, organic products. There are now entire supermarkets devoted to offering organic products, all-natural supplements, and other healthy alternatives. In 2008, people spent over seven billion dollars on organic, all-natural foods. More than 47% of adults admit to having bought organic food in the last year.

Eating healthy and being conscientious about organic foods is good. But natural also has a darker side: the natural man. According to Scripture, "The natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned" (1 Corinthians 2:14). When it comes to spiritual wisdom and discernment, the natural man is dependent only on carnal impulses. And such wisdom is "earthly, sensual, [and] demonic" resulting in "envy . . . self-seeking . . . confusion . . . and every evil thing" (James 3:15-16).

"Natural" solutions fit in with the standards of this world, but they are not adequate for the kingdom of God. When you need wisdom, "Ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach" (James 1:5).

There is no wisdom but that which is founded on the fear of God.
John Calvin
