King Solomon said:
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.” (Proverbs 1 v 7)
As I grow older and looking back at the past and comparing with the current situation around me, I am beginning to understand the phrase King Solomon used when he said fools despise wisdom and instruction.
It is difficult to pick a starting point but I think I will start with youths. When I was a youth I learned from my parents and school to respect our elders and to treat others as you would have them treat you. This was a discipline that did us no harm and in general we had a society where people cared for each other, without the fear of harm that is existing today. I cannot say it was all good because there were the ones that exploited and hurt the innocent and poor in society; however the majority feared God and one felt safe and secure with little or no need for locks in houses.
Currently people are trying to deny the existence of God never mind the Fear of God. In so doing youths are taking upon themselves the natural burdens that God would have taken on and have developed the need to fend for themselves resulting in crimes, addictions, suicides and mental illness as a way to solve the internal need they have naturally.
The youths did not get there by accident it was sown by the authorities. The authorities felt they don’t need God the economy could solve the world’s problems. They could make poverty history; get rich by exploiting all the natural resources and ban prayers and bibles from schools because it offends others and so on.
What fools!! The Bible is the living word of God, in it is the image and likeness of man and in it provides the blueprint for man to live a happy, joyous and peaceful life on the beautiful earth God the creator has made.
Is there any wonder we are experiencing this global confusion currently?
Time to turn back to Jesus our God and creator.
My experiences prove Jesus is real. Read my books.
