We are born to seek wisdom, the problem is that we thirst for it so much, that often we end up getting it from the wrong place. Certainly if you are dehydrated and stranded in a far island, the last thing you want to do is drink water from the ocean – it will kill you. You must exercise restrain and self-control and in the midst of all that uncontrollable thirst, try to find fresh water.
The wisdom of this world with its fame, fortune, sexual immorality, money-seeking, drunkenness, drugs and much more isn’t the place we’ll find life. The bible tells us that our thirst can be quenched by Him who has springs of eternal life. If you drink from Him, you’ll never thirst again.
