So I have been reading books on my wonderful NOOK, and love the ease in reading. But am I missing something, that the touch and feel of books give your senses? Do you retain more when reading electronic vs. paper? What are your thoughts? I for one am not looking for pro vs con arguments just why do you love one vs the other? Or should we be seeking a blessing of wisdom?
Wisdom is a great thing just look at how smart King Solomon was…
1 Kings 4:30 Solomon’s wisdom was greater than the wisdom of all the people of the East, and greater than all the wisdom of Egypt.
1 Kings 4:29 [ Solomon’s Wisdom ] God gave Solomon wisdom and very great insight, and a breadth of understanding as measureless as the sand on the seashore.
1 Kings 10:23 King Solomon was greater in riches and wisdom than all the other kings of the earth.
But he did not achieve this on his own He sought out God and asked for it. So for us to have wisdom and I mean true wisdom not just book smart, because some of the most book smart people are short when it comes to common sense and just the same some with a lot of common sense are not very book savvy. So how do we find that happy medium? How do we know enough of this subject without knowing way more or less of another? So how does one know if they are truly wise? What tools can we measure wisdom by the number of doctorates someone has behind their name, does this make them any smarter than someone like a farmer? Sure the book smart might be able to give statistics of how to yield a better harvest or what percent of water that each plant needs but a farmer works the soil and can tell when it lacks something, if the plant is brown or yellow = to much or not enough water, if the ear of corn are small or if they are big, farmers used to just use their gut instinct to know when to harvest or not, when to plant or not to plant, they did not have weather on demand, they looked to the sky, they did not have chemicals to aide for all types of bugs to mold to rot, they looked at the plants and did what they could.
1 John 4:1[ On Denying the Incarnation ] Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
Our real answers await us when we ask God for wisdom just as Solomon did.
Love and Blessings the Gingham Chick 🙂
