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?

Rush Limbaugh Explains How Robert Mueller
Will Attempt To Financially Destroy President Trump

 Special Counsel Robert Mueller has crossed President Trump’s “red line” after issuing a subpoena for documents related to the Trump Organization’s business dealings with Russia.

New York Times reports:

The special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, has subpoenaed the Trump Organization to turn over documents, including some related to Russia, according to two people briefed on the matter. The order is the first known time that the special counsel demanded documents directly related to President Trump’s businesses, bringing the investigation closer to the president. […] The Trump Organization has said that it never had real estate holdings in Russia, but witnesses recently interviewed by Mr. Mueller have been asked about a possible real estate deal in Moscow. In 2015, a longtime business associate of Mr. Trump’s emailed Mr. Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen at his Trump Organization account claiming he had ties to President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia and said that building a Trump Tower in Moscow would help Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign.

Radio host Rush Limbaugh theorized on his program Friday that one of Mueller’s true objectives is to financially destroy President Trump.

Partial transcript via Breitbart News:

And these requests, the subpoena for documents from the Trump Organization, I ask you again, what has that to do with the campaign and with collusion and with the Russians? They’ve already been looking into Trump business in Russia with the Miss, what is it, USA, whatever his pageant is.

Do you all remember during the early days of the campaign there was news that Trump, in a tax return something like 20 years ago, took a $900 million deduction that was granted and survived an audit by the IRS? Now, I forget the details. It had to do with losses that he had incurred in that year in building things. It was around 900 or $920 million deduction. I’ll never forget when it was reported because most people will never come close to ever having that in a lifetime, and to have a guy personally write that much off?

Anyway, I think Mueller wants that $920 million back. I think Mueller wants to prove that that was a faulty deduction. I think that they want to go back, they want to get Trump’s tax returns because they want to nullify that $900 million deduction, and then they want to collect 20 years of interest and penalties and wipe Trump out.

In the meantime, President Trump’s lawyers are in the process of negotiating with special counsel Robert Mueller to bring the Russia probe to an end, reports Rebecca Ballhaus and Peter Nicholas of the Wall Street Journal.

Mueller’s tentacles continue to reach further and further.

CNN reported that investigators are attempting to determine whether former Blackwater chief Erik Prince misled the  House Intelligence Committee about a meeting he had in Seychelles in January of 2017.

Prince is accused of using the meeting as an opportunity to establish a secret back channel with Russia.

Fox News’ Catherine Herridge spoke with one of President Trump’s personal lawyers about the new subpoena request by Special Counsel Mueller.

According to Herridge, Trump’s lawyer was unaware of the subpoena and said it may be a ‘wrap up’ subpoena or ‘clean up’ subpoena which may signal the end of the investigation.
