Day 92 Wisdom is older than dirt!

Proverbs 8 : 23,30-31 23 "I was formed long ages ago, at the very beginning, when the world came to be. Then I was constantly at his side. I was filled with delight day after day,rejoicing always in his presence,rejoicing in his whole world and delighting in humankind".
wow, If Adam and Eve had wisdom back the garden, why did Eve want to eat the fruit of knowledge of good and evil? she lived with eternal wisdom, why seek it elsewhere?

I suppose its like us having the scriptures and reading the horoscope as well.
Belief with False Belief.... Getting our wisdom from God or from His created world.

We look at uncertainty in the spiritual and therefore we count as abstract and therefore not real whereas, when we use the created "thing" we relate to the concrete, we are inclined to believe our two dimensional life because our physical eyesight informs us. (Apparently, our Retina is two dimensional but we live in a three dimensional world)

Godly wisdom begins with a knowledge of God and works from there...


  1. So true. Because we can touch our world, we believe it above God. As we purpose to be aware of his presence we increase our sensitivity to the spiritual world around us.

    I appreciate the exhortation about horiscopes. I am surprised at how many believers feel no qualms about dabbling in things God has strictly forbidden.

    I did not know that about the retina. How do we see depth if our eye is two demenional?

  2. "We can see things in three dimensions because the visual system re-constructs the three-dimensional (3D) configurations of objects from their two-dimensional (2D) images projected onto the retinas". Taken from a Neuroclinical abstract at

    When elderly people have difficulty crossing thresholds, going from one gradient to another it tells us that part of the brain is not functioning as it should. I have seen it with people who have had strokes.

    Interesting isn't it. I am learning alot from those online lectures.
