If you have read the book of Genesis you will realize that God created man in His image and likeness and gave him a commandment to stay on His path and not violate His commandments, but it was not so, the man did not fulfill the commandment of God, but he deviated and dragged with him all the humanity that was to come towards corruption. Did everything stay there? No! Well, God sent His only Son so that we would be redeemed from sin.
Beloved brothers, the truth is that when we guard ourselves from the world and its desires then we become blessed, happy people, admired people. And this is what God has called us, to turn away from the world and its desires, to study the Word of God and to go in prayer to know what the true way is in a world totally corrupted by sin.
31 rejoicing in his whole world
and delighting in mankind.
32 “Now then, my children, listen to me;
blessed are those who keep my ways.
33 Listen to my instruction and be wise;
do not disregard it.
This chapter is dedicated to speaking about wisdom, but not about any kind of wisdom, but that which comes from above, that which brings men into true sanity, the one that guides us towards the true path that is Christ.
There are men who think they are wise, but their wisdom is vanity, it is quickly destroyed and it does not illuminate them to take the correct path, nevertheless, the wisdom that comes from above, if we walk and we are attentive to that advice, which is the Word of God, then we will be considered as blessed men. If we keep this path we are truly blessed.
It is my prayer to God to help us stand firm in the wisdom of this world, to help us to have a thought like Christ’s and that his strength be with us every day of our lives.
