Wisdom
 
Socrates was born in Athens, Greece, about four hundred years 
before Christ. The world continues to talk and write about the 
wisdom of Socrates. Would you like to live and be remembered 
as a wise person? Solomon was probably the wisest man that 
ever lived and he wrote the book of Ecclesiastes. 
In chapter 12, verse 13, he gives us wisdom in a nutshell: 
“Fear God and keep his commandments” (NIV).

The Bible points out the path of wisdom for all who would follow it. 
Let’s explore this topic, a source of pride to the ancient Grecians, 
and one of great interest to people in our day.


1. Job 28:28.

According to Job, what is the source of wisdom? 
What does it mean to fear the Lord? 
Do most people have spiritual wisdom today? 
What is the advantage of shunning evil?


2. Psalm 104:24–25.

When you contemplate the wonders of creation, how do you feel? 
What word is used in this text to indicate how God created all things?


3. Proverbs 4:7.

What is our principal need in life? 
How do we get wisdom? 
How does wisdom demonstrate itself in life? 
What is it worth?


4. Matthew 13:54.

When Jesus returned to Nazareth where 
He grew up, what did the people say of Him? 
Where did Christ get His wisdom and miraculous powers? 
Where do we get wisdom?


5. Luke 2:39–40.

How is Jesus described at twelve years of age? 
What kinds of growth did Jesus experience? 
What else was evident in His life?


6. 1 Corinthians 3:18–20.

How is the wisdom of this world described? 
Why does God look upon man’s wisdom as vain?


7. Colossians 2:1–3.

What three things did Paul desire for the church at Colosse? 
In whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge?


8. Colossians 4:5.

What does Paul mean by saying we should be wise 
in the way we act toward outsiders, or non-Christians? 
Do you think we miss opportunities to 
witness because of our insensitivity to others?


9. James 1:5.

Do you feel you lack wisdom? In what areas? 
If God is the source of wisdom, how do we get it? 
What is God’s reaction when we make requests of Him?


10. James 3:17.

Describe the wisdom that comes from heaven. 
Is God’s wisdom demonstrated in our lives? 
Why or why not?

CONFUSION:   Pelosi Says Constitution Spells Out ‘Two Co-Equal Branches’ Of Government

No Nancy. No.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi must be taking night classes at the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez School of Government.

Pelosi, the 79-year-old third-highest ranking official in the U.S. government, was speaking to the Center for American Progress today when she mistakenly said there are “two co-equal branches” of government, before correcting herself to say there are three.

Watch:

“First of all, let me just say, we take an oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States,” Pelosi said.

“Democrats take that oath seriously, and we are committed to honoring our oath of office. I’m not sure that our Republican colleagues share that commitment, and I’m not sure that the president of the United States does, too,” she claimed.

“So, in light of the fact that the beauty of the Constitution is a system of checks and balances— two co-equal branches— three co-equal branches of government,” she corrected with a laugh.

“A check and balance on each other,” she continued. “Con— Constitution spells out the pri— pa, uh, the duties of Congress and one of them is oversight of the president of the United States, another one of them is to impeach the president of the United States,” Pelosi said.

In November, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rallied supporters on Facebook to pitch in and help Democrats take back “all three chambers of Congress.”

“…the Progressive movement works and it wins in all districts…If we work our butts off to make sure that we take back all three chambers of Congress– three chambers of government…,” she said during the virtual appearance.

She clarified that she meant the “presidency, the Senate and the House.”

According to the Constitution, the three branches of government are the legislative, executive and judicial.
