May 18, 2022 – Are You Simple or Prudent?
Sermon: 1000 – Wisdom’s Final Call
Pray Over This
“How long, you simple ones, will you love simplicity? For scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge.”
Who are the simple in this verse? The word simple here comes from a root word that means “open.” This person is just open to everything—easily led. We might also call this person gullible. He or she does not stop to think things through. There are many people today who could be characterized as simple. They never stop to think about the great issues of life. They just want to have a good time, and they never stop to think. They don’t consider if something honors God or dishonors God. They just don’t think serious thoughts. Proverbs 22:3 says, “A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, but the simple pass on and are punished.” They never stop to think there’s death and judgment to face or that there’s Hell to shun and Heaven to gain. The prudent avoid evil but the simple walk directly toward it.
Create two lists: one containing the wise aspects of your life and one containing the simple. Submit this list before God, asking Him to give you wisdom that only comes from Him.
