Where to Lean

Yet wisdom is vindicated by all her children. – Luke 7:35

“The proof is in the pudding,” is an old quip that means, “Once the results are in, what we say is true will be proven through our actions.” In the Old Testament, “wisdom” is often personified and given a female designation. Jesus picked up that theme and, in the context of the rejection of both His and John the Baptist’s ministries, stated that God’s wisdom would be proven “right” by all “her” offspring. In other words, God’s truth will ultimately prove itself.

John was rejected for being an ascetic hermit. Jesus was rejected for His association with sinners. Ultimately, if you decide to be a truth-teller for God’s kingdom in this world, you will most likely face some sort of rejection. In fact, we now live in a world where it seems God’s truth is passé, out-of-date, and no longer deemed relevant by the “enlightened.”

Just remember, God’s wisdom will always prevail. Lean on His, not your own.

Now all the knowledge and wisdom that is in creatures, whether angels or men, is nothing else but a participation of that one eternal, immutable and increased wisdom of God. – Unknown
