Store up for yourselves treasures in Heaven
where moth and rust cannot destroy and thieves cannot break in and steal

Knowledge yes - Wisdom no

In the last chapter of the book of Daniel, he writes that in the latter years of history, the amount of knowledge that humans possess will vastly increase and that people will be travelling here and there around the world.

What a concept that must have been for him, writing at a time when acquired knowledge was very limited and the term “around the world” regarding understanding what he was saying, was equivalent to our present understanding of "before time began."

Well, we certainly are travelling around the world in ways that were unimaginable even 50 years ago. And we certainly are seeing an increase in knowledge to a degree that the amount that we know doubles every few years.

But wisdom? Mmm, not so much.

In fact, most humans take a look at the knowledge that we’ve accumulated (for example as it applies to origins), they see where it’s pointing and then they make the decidedly unwise decision to ignore the obvious conclusion and go with “magic” did it, or perhaps, “nothing” did it, or even, “none of this is real.”

For these people, anything is better than accepting the truth of a Creator to whom we will one day be held accountable for our decision to deny His existence.

"One day every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus is Lord of lords, and King of kings, true God and Creator of everything that is seen and unseen."
