WORD TO THE WISE - Proverbs 3:35

Proverbs 3:35 The wise shall inherit glory: but shame shall be the promotion of fools.

The hope of the wise man is not that he should experience glory now. The world idolizes the man who seeks and obtains all kinds of promotion and notoriety. But the Christian is content, believing in a better hope that he has by promise from God, who cannot lie, through the gospel (Titus 1:-2). It was through wisdom that God, through Christ, secured this destiny of eternal life for His people and through wisdom He, by the Spirit, makes this known to them (Eph 1:3-9/Rom 8:29-30). And it is through wisdom that His people walk soberly with their God, knowing that they will be called to suffering in this life, both FOR and WITH Christ (Phil 1:29/1 Pet 2:21). Yet they have great expectation that they shall receive with Him glory to follow (1Pet 5:1/Ps 84:11)! Amen!
