Daily Devotion: Where Is the Wise?

Bible Reading: I Corinthians 1:14-22

Key Verse: Verse 20 – “Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?"

Key Words: Where is the wise

There is devilish wisdom, worldly wisdom, and then Godly wisdom. Paul is asking, where are those who have Godly wisdom? Not many of those around today; and evidently, not many in Corinth in Paul’s day. Wisdom is like silver or hidden treasure.

Tony Evans writes: “When speaking about wisdom, the Bible says, ‘Seek her as silver and search for her as for hidden treasures.’  Silver and hidden treasure are located underneath the ground.  They require digging.  The fact that the treasures are hidden implies that it is not on top of the ground, obvious to the casual eye.  Why would God not make wisdom available for anyone to pick up too easily?  It’s too valuable.  He doesn’t want folks to pick it up who don’t intend on using it.  He has placed wisdom as a hidden treasure underneath the ground for those who really want it.  Just like people who truly desire to find gold don’t mind digging and working to find it, wisdom is only to be found by people who value it enough to search for it.”

Where is wisdom? It’s in God’s Word; but you have to find it!

What to do:
✞ Seek for wisdom (God’s wisdom).
