Wisdom is not found in the land of the living!

Wisdom is not found in the land of the living!

Job 28:1-11 Job describes the exploits of miners over 3½ thousand years ago (probably)

Job 28:12-22 Even though people have been successful in mining precious metals and precious stones from the earth (recall Job 28:1-11), they have not been successful on their own in discovering what according to Job in Job 28:12?

Job 28:23-28 Don’t despair!  How are the questions asked in Job 28:12,20 answered in Job 28:23?

Wisdom from Above

  • 1:26 For consider your calling, brethren, that there were not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble;
    • 1:30-31 But by His doing you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption, 31 so that, just as it is written, “LET HIM WHO BOASTS, BOAST IN THE LORD.”

But we’ve seen:

James 3:17  But the wisdom from above is
1. first pure,
2. then peaceable,
3. gentle,
4. reasonable,
5. full of mercy
6. and good fruits,
7. unwavering,
8. without hypocrisy.

Note Proverbs 2:6  For the LORD gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding.
