Jesus’ challenge (v.24) to the Pharisees is also for you and me – make a right judgment! Don’t go by appearances. We must be careful how we use the Scripture. The Pharisees used Scripture to oppose and ridicule Jesus!
“How is it that this man has learning, when he has never studied?”
Although this verse speaks directly of our perfect Saviour, God the Son – It also holds great hope for us all.
God’s word can be written on the hearts of everyone! God’s wisdom can be practiced and applied by anyone!
Regardless of our wealth or lack of studies, we are all as God’s people able to partake of His word, to wield His wisdom.
This is a good thing, important to understand.
* Father God,
Thank You that we can have Your word on our hearts, Your wisdom on our lips.
Please help us to be wise in You, to seek Your face, to grow each day in our knowledge and understand of You.
