Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn said, “If I were called upon to identify the principal trait of the entire 20th century, I would be unable to find anything more precise and pithy than this:  Men have forgotten God.”

King Solomon says, “The fear of (or profound respect for) the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline.” (Proverbs 1:7)  Giving God His rightful, first place in our lives is Knowledge Job #1, says reputedly the wisest man who ever lived.

Wisdom is seeing things from God’s perspective, knowing Him on a personal level, trusting Him with your life.  His is the only truly reliable counsel, and it’s only found in the Bible.  Which is why we’re here today.
