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?

ALERT ALERT

 “Acosta, You Are A Dickhead”.... 


Above: Sebastian Gorka, Jim Acosta

“Jim Acosta is actually worse than anyone imagined.”

Former Trump adviser Sebastian Gorka engaged in a loud verbal altercation with CNN‘s Jim Acosta Thursday, according to the Daily Caller‘s Virginia Kruta.

According to multiple witnesses, Acosta made a flippant remark to Gorka – who just launched his SALEM Radio Network show “America First,” telling him that media-related meetings with the president were for “real journalists” only.

Acosta walked in then, according to Gorka, touched his arm and said “Why are you here? This place is for journalists only,” then walked away. He also noted that the incident occurred in front of fellow SALEM host Mike Gallagher and Sirius Patriot XM host David Webb — and explained that, although they had been in the same building on several occasions, he and Acosta had never officially met prior to this incident.

“Abilio ‘Jim’ Acosta, you are a dickhead,” Gorka fired back at Acosta. – Daily Caller

“For the next 40 minutes, he hid in the back and didn’t come out as I was right by the exit, until I went to the Oval Office,” Gorka told the Caller, adding “Jim Acosta is actually worse than anyone imagined. He’s definitely not a journalist, and he is clearly a cowering coward. I just feel sorry for anyone who is in the White House pool with him and know he is hated by all the actual journalists in the White House.”

Wow! Unbelievably NASTY decorum in White House Press Briefing room! @Acosta walks by new radio show host @SebGorka and says to him: “Why are you here? This place is for journalists only.” Really Jim? And too? Welcome to the press room, Seb!

Vince Coglianese of the Daily Caller was there for the exchange, and said “The whole room went silent as Gorka chewed [Acosta] out.”

Sirius Patriot XM host David Webb confirmed the incident, saying “I was right next to Sebastian and he reported accurately what Acosta said. Acosta was serious and condescending.”
