VerseD: Proverbs 9:10

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight.
Proverbs 9:10, ESV

No matter how smart or wise a person may be, true wisdom and knowledge comes from God and knowing Him. Peace of mind is found in Christ alone, knowing we are His and free from wrath.

VerseD: Proverbs 3:7

Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord , and turn away from evil.
Proverbs 3:7, ESV

We do not know enough about our world or what others are thinking to be right about everything all the time.
Rather, we should avoid thinking so, which is sinful pride, and other evil thoughts and practices that lead and separate us from God.

Video Lesson: Infinite to Infinitesimal Gospel

We should know the big picture.

It is extremely helpful to know the littlest parts: how things work and what needs to be understood.

How would you define infinity? What is it?

What is the opposite of infinity? Do you know?
(Hint: It is not negative infinity!)
[In other words, what is the limit of what we should know?]

What does the Bible say?

  1. Matthew 22:36-40
    1. L                               God.
    2. L                               people.
      1. The first 3.5 C are based on the first.
      2. The second 6.5 C are based on the second.
  2. 1 Corinthians 2:1-2
    1. The best way to love God is admit J is God who loved us enough to become a h and die for our sins.
    2. The best way to love people is tell them that God became a human to die for our sins!

There is obviously more detail on how we love God and others, but that is for another lesson!

So, love God and others by reading your Bible to know Him better and to share the full Gospel with everyone!

VerseD: Deuteronomy 6:6

And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart.
Deuteronomy 6:6, ESV

God’s Word should be our primary source of knowledge that all other knowledge filters through. This is one way we love God, and by extension others.

VerseD: Jeremiah 33:3

Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.
Jeremiah 33:3, ESV

Do not merely test God. He says to earnestly seek Him, and, when you call to Him in faith believing Jesus is His Son who died for you, He will answer in ways you do not know.

Walk with Him. Talk with Him.

VerseD: Proverbs 18:2

A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing his opinion.
Proverbs 18:2, ESV

How easy it is for us to claim understanding without knowledge. We think we know God’s will and desires, but frequently we push our own onto His.

Humbly seek God through His Word and Church, being willing to learn before offering opinions.

Versed: Proverbs 1:7

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Proverbs 1:7, ESV

A fool hates hearing they are wrong. Jesus revealed the truth of God, and none of us were right.

Will you listen to Him?

VerseD: Proverbs 9:10

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight.
Proverbs 9:10, ESV

True wisdom reveals our sinful nature and desperate need for grace and forgiveness from our Creator and Judge.

Seek the wisdom of God, found in the Person of Jesus Christ.

VerseD: Romans 1:20

For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.
Romans 1:20, ESV

Evidence for God’s existence are everywhere. Some may try to claim they never knew, but God has said otherwise.

The ultimate proof, though, is the resurrection of Jesus.

VerseD: Matthew 18:3-5

[Jesus] said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me”
Matthew 18:3‭-‬5, ESV

Children know they don’t know everything and that they need help.

We need Christ’s forgiveness to and grace, and we need His wisdom.
