J.R.R. Tolkien once wrote, “The wise speak only of what they know.” The maxim remains true: The wise can speak of wisdom, for it is what they know. The unwise, similarly, speak of what they know. As we have been studying over the past several weeks, we are all in need of wisdom. Wisdom in our relationships, wisdom in our finances, wisdom in our life decisions.
As our Fool Proof series comes to a close, we want to focus in on one more area, and perhaps it is the most significant area in which any of us could seek wisdom, our relationship with God. In John chapter 9 we see a handful of people wrestling with Jesus miraculously healing a man. So many involved in this story were relying on human understanding to make sense of it all, but what they truly needed was the change of heart that comes with wisdom from God.
