Is now the time to examine our faith, relax, and roll with the punches same as savvy (wise) Gamblers?
The Chicago Tribune depressing news reporting current events about the Omicron, Inflation, political hatred, school closings, price gouging, crime, shootings, threats of war, terrorist uprisings, South America leaning toward Communism, etc. that are occurring in our Nation and World, may perhaps shake up faith believers’ human hearts to wonder about God’s establishment plans.
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate ancient wisdom verses and an article for faith believers to roll with the punches and correct faith so as to not leave a correct understanding of God out of the picture “
In their hearts humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps. (Proverb 16:9)
What is crooked cannot be straightened; what is lacking cannot be counted. (Ecclesiastes 1:15)
Matthew Poole Bible Commentary Ecclesiastes 1:15
“That which is crooked cannot be made straight; all our knowledge serves only to discover our diseases and miseries, but is oft itself utterly insufficient to heal or remove them; it cannot rectify those confusions and disorders which are either in our own hearts and lives, or in the men and things of the world.”
“That which is wanting, to wit, in our knowledge, and in order to man’s complete satisfaction and felicity, cannot be numbered; we know little of what we should or might know, or did know in the state of innocence, or shall know in the future life.”
In My Opinion
If we are feeling depressed because of the path we or others choose in life is crooked, we need to understand and obtain the knowledge that leads to wisdom in our lives same as the contemporary song verse in the Gamblers Song Chorus words and commentary.
“You got to know when to hold them”
In other words, our parents essentially gambled when the choose to want to hold us instead of choosing to abort us.
“Know when to roll them”
In life we need the wisdom of faith to understand that over time we need to roll with the punches that life and we humans’ judgements are not always as fair as our God’s.
“Know when to walk away, know when to run”
There will be temptations in life to seek earthly pleasures that are foolish that we need the wisdom to recognize in order to know when to run rather than indulge in our vanities.
“Never count your money, Sitting at the table”
Money or treasures in life gathered in excesses will be meaningless when our time in life ends. What to count or gather in life instead is our righteous action to accumulate spiritual accounting of graceful kindness, an accounting of good deeds.
“There will be time enough to count them, When the dealings done”
Eternity is an unmeasurable period of time in heaven or hell compared to our human short time spans on earth we humans will be dealt with based on Ecclesiastes 1;15/.
Read the Source Link article below which ends with the following wisdom advice for faith believers.
“God’s governance of His creation contains absolutely no complacency. He creates circumstances for our benefit both to test us and to strengthen our faith. We need to exercise our faith, and He needs to know where we stand. We must understand that, as the apostle Paul states in I Corinthians 13:12, we sometimes “see in a mirror dimly.” So, the question facing us is, “Do we trust that He is faithfully carrying out His creative actions even when we fail to see the entire picture?”
Would there be less depressing news reports if we humans were taught Bible faith and wisdom and love in our lives in depth during the grades in school from kindergarten to eighth. The ages which all psychiatrists agree are the most impressionable and vulnerable ages which even King Solomon advised in this following verse.
Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old, they will not turn from verse. / a child in youth and he will remember (Proverb 22:6)
Should we consider voting for legislators who will support school vouchers in the 2022 elections because obviously private schools are a much better gambling odds than public secular schools. I base this statement on facts because most affluent parents, most politicians and 40 percent of all public-school teachers choose private schools to provide better gambling odds for their children’s future to obtain the Spiritual Bible Wisdom to roll with the Punches.
Regards and goodwill blogging.
