1 Corinthians 1:19-20 (NKJV)
For it is written: “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, And bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”
Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
Biodun was very angry with his brother because his brother told him that Jesus was the solution to his marital problems.
Biodun: do you think I am one of those weak foolish people who cry to God for everything instead of taking responsibility? I don’t have time for this foolishness you are talking about.
Tayo (Biodun’s Brother): you asked me how my home was saved and I told you. I did not mean to offend you. I am only trying to show you the way my home became peaceful and restored. Vivian and I did not have any hope together; we were always fighting and were ready for a divorce, but someone invited us to a crusade, and we accepted the Lord there. That was how peace and love came into our home. We became accountable to each other, and because we now both fear the Lord, there are certain things we cannot do. I trust Vivian totally because I know she fears the Lord. She trusts me too.
Biodun was a very wise person in this world, but his wisdom could not save his marriage. His brother who he considered to not so wise was the one with a happy home and successful life because he received the preaching of the cross.
If a person lives a life regulated by the cross of Christ, he would walk in such wisdom that will prove to the wise of the world that they are foolish.
Go into today thanking God for sending the message of the cross your way. Ask the Lord to help you also be a messenger of this glorious message.
