The folly of human wisdom.

In my human wisdom, I have many strong opinions. But I’m becoming increasingly disillusioned with my human wisdom. As I look back over my life, my human wisdom has not delivered happiness to me, but rather, has been the source of all my pain and misery.

Not only am I becoming disillusioned with MY human wisdom, but ALL human wisdom. I no longer believe that humans were created to have the wisdom necessary to govern ourselves. Proverbs 3:3-5 commands us to not lean on our own understanding, and not be wise in our own eyes. In the history of humans, I find all the problems we’ve had, have been rooted in relying on human wisdom. It’s why I don’t believe any kind of government works for long — king, dictator, democracy, republic, whatever.

I don’t have a clue, how to fix the USA, much less the entire world. I’m convinced that biblical wisdom, is believing that I don’t have any worth leaning on, but that Jesus does. I don’t believe we’ve seen this in the history of the Church, and that’s why it’s so sick. As sick as the collective “we” — government. Our attempts at governing ourselves have been folly. I’m disillusioned with MY wisdom, your wisdom, every human’s wisdom.

The human who says, “I have no wisdom, no agenda of my own, so I need Jesus guiding my every step, and I see Him behind everyone and everything,” is the happiest, most peaceful, most loving, in my research, experience. I myself am happier and more peaceful, maybe even slightly more loving, than ever in my 77 years of being dragged along kicking and screaming the entire way, AGAINST my better judgment — my human wisdom.

Human wisdom is passionate for EASY. Suffering-avoidant. Idolatrous. Dysfunctional. Self-absorbed.
