(Proverbs 8:22 KJV) The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.
Wisdom is timeless. We believe that there are certain principles that were established by God before the creation. They reflect His nature. God “possessed” (7069) wisdom.
This goes against the teaching of our culture. We live in a time when absolute truth, and wisdom, are rejected. Everything is relative. Nothing is unchanging. Common sense tells us that some things are relative. You drive slower in a midnight ice storm than you do on a sunny day. Other things you can take to the bank. Adultery is wrong. Your college professors might disagree but what do they know?
This should give us a secure place to stand. Not in arrogance. We are not the ones that are always right, God is. And God has made His teachings clear enough for the simple and complex enough for the scholar.
So? Live what you know. Ignore the nonsense as much as you can. Remind yourself, “This, too, shall pass.”
