Good Morning December 8

Man has always exalted in his human reason. Reason is important, and a God given gift, but unless reason is guided by the wisdom given from the Lord, it leads to disaster. King Solomon wrote, “There is a way which seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.”(Proverbs 16:25) Perhaps we need to consider this more fully in our day of genetic experimentation, and other directions in which reason leads. The problem is not new. Isaiah wrote, “You turn things upside down, as if the potter were thought to be like the clay! Shall what is formed say to him who formed it, ‘He did not make me?’ Can the pot say of the potter, ‘He knows nothing’?”(Isaiah 29:16) Godly wisdom can only come of God’s Word. Our faith is build on the conviction that God revealed Himself to mankind. The record of that revelation is in the Bible, and above all in His perfect revelation in the person of Jesus Christ. As wonderful as God’s gift of human reason is, it must yield itself to the truth God has given in His Word.
