(Proverbs 1:29 KJV) For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD:
Choices and priorities. Coincidence and probability. Take your pick and build a life. I keep hearing surveys that show most Americans believe in God and pray. That should show a culture of wise choices and righteous priorities. The evidence before my eyes shows a population taking their chances on the luck of the draw. Someone is living in delusion.
We know that the “fear” (3374) of the Lord is the foundation for “knowledge” (1847) and wisdom. Obviously a person who “hated” (8130) knowledge is rejecting the Lord. Without these ingredients you are destined for frustration, failure and, yes, hell.
So? Life has big choices and small choices. Make sure you base them on knowledge, not guesswork.
