The origin of Wisdom (Jeremiah 8:9)

The wise men shall be put to shame; they shall be dismayed and taken; behold, they have rejected the word of the LORD, so what wisdom is in them?

A little girl once asked her mom of where man came from. Her mother answered that humans were created by God. On the other hand, her dad replied that man came from the evolution of monkeys. Because of contradicting responses, the little girl got confused. She asked her mom, “Why is that mom that you have different answer with dad? He said we came from monkeys!”

Her mother smiled and said, “Well baby, I just answered how our side was created.”

The problem with man is that we always want to prove something hence “to see is to believe” existed because of man’s desire to feed curiosity through experiments and discoveries. Though many of it had been useful and we give credit to these curious cats’ discoveries, there are some who proposes beliefs that contradicts the word of God. For example, Charles Darwin and his theory of the Evolution of Man.

Wise men sometimes forget to give God what is due. Some had come to an extent that they do not believe they need God and even consider themselves as gods. They are more focus on their experiments and the honor that it will give them. No matter how high your IQ is if you are against God, you are nothing. Wisdom comes from god and wisdom goes to those who believe in His words (verse).

Most of these so-called wise men love to engage in debates where they can share their opinions. To them, they will never go wrong and they will fight for what they think is right until the end. If their brain cells are not used for God’s glory, they are not using it properly. Time will come that the world will come to an end. Will their so called high IQs save them from judgment?

May we not be deceived by the wrong teachings of some so called clever men. The true wise men are those who believe and stand in the word of God.
