There is a gulf of difference here between fools and the wise. If I understand wisdom not just as sacred knowledge but secular knowledge of the world God has made (with the understanding it was created), then fools deny both. Fools assume a godless creation and a godless life. Funny.
Fools can actually know a lot of things. But so much of it is useless knowledge. I am beginning to understand that wisdom is the sum total of all knowledge that both springs from knowledge of God and returns you to glorifying God in that knowledge. Wisdom is a beautiful thing if you can find it, and sort it out from all of the foolish notions that get handed out as knowledge. Foolish facts will lead you away from God. Wisdom will lead you to Him. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.
Elegant, isn’t it?
