Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you seems to be wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise. For the wisdom of the world is foolishness with God. For It is written “He catches the wise in their own craftiness”. And again, The Lord knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are futile”. Therefore let no one boast in men for all things are yours.
Believers are encouraged to avoid worldly wisdom because it’s simply will leave them on the wrong path. The world sees reality upside down, inside out, and we value things God despises, and despises the things God values. We say right is wrong, and wrong is right. Failure is success. and success is failure then, and we seek the things that a futile and love the things that are false.
The world’s Ideas conflict with the word God teaches. This worldly wisdom we are to reject. Godly wisdom teaches us we must spend time studying and understanding what God’s Word says in all areas of life.
