The Bible—Wisdom Beyond Our Years

The Bible—Wisdom Beyond Our Years

The Psalmist wrote:

Oh, how I love Your law!

It is my meditation all the day.

You, through Your commandments, make me wiser than my enemies;

For they are ever with me.

I have more understanding than all my teachers,

For Your testimonies are my meditation.

I understand more than the ancients,

Because I keep Your precepts.[1]

The Bible gives us a wisdom that transcends this world. My dad is a great example of this. Born Amish, they don’t believe in education beyond eight grade or so. They believe the basics is all you need because you’re going to spend your life working the farm. But my father received Christ and God called him into ministry. He loved to read and taught himself. God’s wisdom taught him everything he needed to serve in ministry. Many people have told me he was one of the greatest pastors and Bible teachers. His knowledge of the Word came straight from Heaven.

Paul told Timothy about the effect God’s Word’s would have on his life. “From childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.”
