Use your academic knowledge to make wise decisions not to your detriment.

Luke 7:30 But the Pharisees and experts in religious law rejected God’s plan for them, for they had refused John’s baptism. Sometimes academics like it when they criticize the work of God and they receive applause for their skills in querying Christian practices. The excitement is good now but when judgement day comes, it will be one judged based on how they led the life while on earth. Jeremiah 8:9 These wise teachers will fall into the trap of their own foolishness, for they have rejected the word of the LORD. Are they so wise after all?

Wisdom is knowing what needs to be done now.

Exodus 20:13 “You shall not murder. Wisdom helped Solomon find the truth when a critical decision had to be taken. Sometimes we loose things or fail because we become too spiritual with our decisions.1 Kings 3:24 Then the king said, “Bring me a sword.” So they brought a sword for the king. I’m sure Christian were also shocked by the king’s utterance.

There is a person who need prayer and who need food before prayer.
