Influencing culture for the Kingdom

Proverbs 28:5 NASB

“Evil men do not understand justice, but those who seek the LORD understand all things.” Proverbs 28:5 NASB

What if your brain were Google and you had access to all available information in your head. You certainly would dominate on Jeopardy. In this verse, Solomon is not taking a shot at those who are evil, although scripture is clearly unapproving of evil, sinful people in plenty of places. Here, he is simply comparing those who are focused on darkness and those who live for the light. Evil people do not know God and his truth “because their minds are naturally blind and are further blinded by their own prejudices and passions, and by the god of this world, who rules in and over them.” By contrast those of us “that seek the Lord, by diligent study of his word, and by fervent prayers to him for advice and all things which are necessary to know Him” we have access to Him and His vast knowledge. Living in His light will not make us omniscient, but it connects us to the source of all wisdom and knowledge. This is better than Google in your head. Google has no filter for good or evil. God brings truth with clear direction between right and wrong. Today, walk in His truth and shine His light in the world. #BeTheEdge

“…if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light…” 1 John 1:7a NASB
