“THE WAY OF WISDOM”
Introduction – The Old Man and the Horse
What is Wisdom?
Neal Plantinga –
In the literature of Scripture wisdom is, broadly speaking, the knowledge of God’s world and the knack of fitting oneself into it. The wise person knows creation. She knows its boundaries and limits, its laws and rhythms, discerns its times and seasons, respects its great dynamics. She understands that creation possesses its own integrity and significance quite apart from her claim on it and quite apart from any possibility that creation will make her happy. The wise person gives in to creation and to God, and she does the first because she does the second.
