Pursuing Wisdom, Pursuing God

Are we aware how close God is to us and are we making the most of it?


Luke 11:31

How far will we go to hear God’s word? To start to know God better to be able to see things like God sees? To then act in the love that God is? This wisdom far surpasses any intelligence or knowledge we may ever possess. Are we pursuing wisdom?

If only one person held wisdom would we travel from afar to go listen to him (Solomon)? If wisdom was in a book located in a far away library, would we make the trip to check it out? Only if we were truly seeking wisdom would the distance not matter. We would find ways to overcome any obstacle that got in our paths because we are seeking God; the fountain of life.

But what if God had been seeking us and came to where we are? Where we didn’t need to travel or overcome any obstacles? Where all we need to do is answer the door when Jesus knocks? Are we willing to give only our time and attention to God who is with us?

No wonder Jesus speaks of others condemning a generation gifted with God among them. Others had to overcome many challenges to have what we now have so easily accessible. We who have God’s word, Jesus, available in scripture and the church, are we embracing God? Can we appreciate how fortunate we are to have God so close to us like never before?
