Seek the Bible when wisdom is needed

A few weeks ago, I took my boat out on the river with my son. It was running fine when I started it at home and first put it into the water. But as soon as I got out of the wake zone and started going faster, it just died. It would start back up, but again, as soon as I would try to go faster, it would die. I took it back out of the water and back home.

I told friends, neighbors, fellow church members and even boat mechanics what the boat was doing, and I heard several different possibilities. I drained out the old gas, cleaned out the filters and tried other various things with no success. The truth of the matter is that with it being a fuel-injection system, the only way of determining the problem was to take the boat to a shop and have it hooked up to a diagnostic machine. This is what I ended up doing, and the problem was found and taken care of.

This kind of reminds me of man’s search for wisdom and the answers to life in general. People have issues or problems and try to find the answers at work or school or from their neighbors or friends. Every piece of advice they receive is not always wrong and most of the time is given out of sincerity.

There is, however, somewhere to go to get answers that will give you a right diagnostic every time. It’s found in the word of God — the Bible. God’s word has a way of revealing mankind’s deepest needs. Second Timothy 3:16 tells us that “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.” In other words, God has the answer to your questions and issues.

So the next time you find yourself seeking wisdom, go to the source of all wisdom.
