V 14 The wise person has his eyes in his head, but the fool walks in darkness. And yet I perceived that the same event happens to all of them
How true it is that most of us encounter the same things in life just in many various forms. We all experience death of someone we love, we all experience arguments, we all experience money problems. They may manifest themselves in many ways but basically we all walk along similar paths. Yet, many of us handle them differently. I believe that the degree to which we are walking, or perhaps not walking, with God determines our reactions. Remember our outward reactions are not the ones that count. The reactions that count are the one’s of the heart that man will never see. Wisdom and I believe that this is godly wisdom, about who God is and what His statues are, will help determine our reactions to problems. Knowing who God is will help us to know how God would want us to react. The more we know God the more we know that this world and all it’s problems are temporary. I also think that God in His word has given us a heads up. He told us that we would have bad things happen to us. As believers we shouldn’t be surprised when we suffer, instead, we should be prepared.
