Lesson: Wisdom in the Economy [Pt 4]

Main Scriptures

Prv 4:7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

Hos 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

Prv 14:12,16:25 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. [Every solution man comes up with, to solve the problems he is faced with, is one where God, and His Word, is totally ignored.] Man wants to prove how smart he is. God, in turn shows him how foolish he is.

Psa 111:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.

1Jn 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.

Prv 22:7 The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.

The Economy – The Cause of the problem

Irregardless of your being a Christian, or not, when facing a problem, a wise person will look for the cause of that problem. It does no good to attempt to correct it, if you don't know what caused it in the first place. The reason being, if you don't deal with the cause of it, it is liable to pop up again, even if you find a way to fix it.

Ex. If you have a foul odor in your house, you can always buy something to cover it up. But, wouldn't it be better to find out what is causing that odor, and remove it?? Well the same holds true for fixing the economy. If we don't deal with the cause, the problem will remain.

It is my contention, that the problem we are facing, is the result of our not following God's directions. In other words, our sin.
