Hi! Mmargie 1966. you have wrote a fantastic interpretation of what smart really means! As you have said, the more you learn, the more you realize you do not know. In application, as I study the Bible deeper, the more I realize how magnanimous God is and I can't really fathom His wonders nor the slightest of His wisdom.
And you consider this wisdom? People are not taught that they are smart. Where in the world did you come up with this particular thought? It certainly didn't come from Wisdom, that's for sure. I am smart enough to dispel falsified wisdom. On a side note- "smart" is more about Intelligence. If you claim you're not smart? Then you lack the intelligence to discern true wisdom.
The best path for understanding is to know that knowledge is key. How you turn that knowledge into actions is what shows whether or not your perception is accurate, which then provides you the opportunity to possess Wisdom.
Yes, it's common knowledge that a lot of people fail to realize that Wisdom is one of the key ingredients to stave off "stupidity" and when people are lead by false Wisdom, it is clear to everyone but themselves.
Since, I don't consider myself wise my ego is in check and my perception is accurate, due to the fact that other people realize the Wisdom in my words and constantly tell me. So, I have Wisdom which is recognized by others, leaving me no rhyme or reason to think I am wise, but leaves with the understanding that I am. It's not something I think. It's something understood.
Cagsil, Thanks for that comment. I welcome that but It does not mean that I agree with you. no matter how God denies the fact that God is the only one who can make one wise, nothing have changed the eternal reality of His Character.
This is how man may gain wisdom, true wisdom:
Pro 1:1-7 The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel; (2) To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding; (3) To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity; (4) To give subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion. (5) A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels: (6) To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings. (7) The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
The only thing you have is knowledge(learning and/or experiences). There's nothing else, and to speak as though man cannot figure out Life is completely ridiculous, absurd, irrational and completely foolish.
I know, I've written more than hub on the topic which to any person who is honest with themselves would agree. The only reason I know that they would agree is because most of the people who have left comments on my hubs on the topic I do write about have expressed so.
Ego- covered. Character- covered. Confusion about Understanding Life- covered. Humanity Habitat and what it truly means- covered. Chosen Ignorance- covered
As human beings we all want to believe that we are smart, even if we don't believe ourselves equal to Einstein. And in America, we want to tell everybody that they are just as smart and just as capable as anybody else. It's an easy trap to fall into, thinking that you are literally just as good at everything as anybody else. The fact is that most people are smart, but not everybody can join Mensa (I know I can't!)
Or, to paraphrase Clint Eastwood, "A person's got to know their limitations."
This is silliness. This is the Adamic Inception at work.
Do you realize you are greater than Adam, who was given ALL wisdom & understanding of heaven-earth, that he would live in this stasis forever? Do you realize the Inception was reversed, once more giving every human access to that understanding, without reserve?!
Why not accept who you truly are instead of continuously enabling your ego/mind/reason to dictate who your really are?
I won't oppose your opinion for who am I to do that? I know that you have expertise as you shown by your profile but let me say it with all honesty and without any cast of insult that what ever this world called wisdom is foolishness before the Lord.
As the hair falls from a man's head so his days on earth is fast fading away. and when the man who mocks the Lord, who trusts his puny understanding finds himself in hell, then he would wished to have believed, but it's too late...there is no chance to repent.
Mr. Mark Knowles, I would assume you would not be scared by hell or death but reality of both is brighter than your insanity. But you have the chance while you have that borrowed breath. look on to God and repent, He's waiting.
Thanks Druid Dude for joining in. just an addition to your statement...I say that nothing remains hidden pertaining to Godliness but to understand the deepest secrets that belongs alone to God is not necessary.
Deu 29:29 The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.
Please, save us Mark, and you too Cagsil. We need you both to set us straight. Oh LIFE is SO confusing. My brain can't think logically...and we all need you guys to SAVE us from OUR ridiculous thoughts. Oh, how did we even survive without your enlightenment? BE OUR MESSIAHS!!!
It has been said that too much of knowledge could harm human beings. Like Einstein's E=mc2, he said if he would have known that his invention could harm people, he wish he would never been a scientist.
Before you read these below, please note that I included many translations to show the whole of the meanings of the original Hebrew as English words do not carry the weight of Hebrew word for word. You will see they get...
What is the nature of wisdom?How do we know when we encounter it?Do we know if and when we have attained wisdom?Is seeking wisdom simply grasping at smoke?Remember the lyric from Kansas"And if I say that I'm a wise...
