Man seeks wisdom. "Where is the wise man"(I Cor. 1:20), who can solve all our problems, Paul asked rhetorically, and then explained that "in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not come to know God" (I Cor. 2:21). The writer of Ecclesiastes admits, "I set my mind to know wisdom,. but I realized this was striving after wind" (Eccl. 1:17), "for even at night my " (Eccl. 2:23). Also recognizing the vanity of human wisdom, Paul wrote, "Let no man deceive himself. If any man thinks he is wise in this age, let him become foolish that he may become wise. The Lord knows the reasonings of the wise, that they are useless" (I Cor. 3:18,20). Like truth, wisdom is found in a Person, for "Christ Jesus became to us the wisdom of God" (I Cor. 2:24,30). To know Jesus Christ, not just to "know about" Jesus Christ, but to know Jesus Christ in an ongoing relationship of spiritual revelation and intimacy, is to have wisdom that the world knows not of. James, the Lord's brother, wrote, "the wisdom from above is pure, peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering, without hypocrisy" (James 3:17).
