30 Day Jesus Challenge - Day 11 Not Smart Enough

The airwaves are full of smart people claiming to be smart.  They mock God and those who believe in Him as weak, foolish, and pathetic.  Richard Dawkings and Steven Hawking are among the most outspoken, perhaps even the most convincing.  This doesn't surprise God, nor is it new.

"For the wisdom of this world is foolishness to God. As the Scriptures say, "He traps the wise in the snare of their own cleverness." 1 Corinthians 3:19

"There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death." Proverbs 14:12

"For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God." 1 Corinthians 1:18

Ask yourself, of all knowledge that has ever existed, how much do you know?  What percentage of everything can you honestly say that you know?

Not Smart Enough
If you are really smart, maybe you said 5%; 5% of all knowledge.  That's pretty impressive.  Now ask yourself this, do you think it is possible that God exists in the 95% that you don't know?

Pray - Jesus I recognize that I am not smart enough to understand you or this faith.  Give me wisdom as I finish this journey.
