Wisdom will not save you. As we saw yesterday, having allies is not enough to save us from God’s judgment for sin. Now, we see that wisdom is not able to save either. Read Obadiah 1:8.
“Will I not on that day,” declares the Lord , “Destroy wise men from Edom And understanding from the mountain of Esau?
Obadiah 1:8 NASB
Are we trusting in our “smarts” or other cunning abilities that we think we have? God makes it very clear that wisdom will not save Edom, and it won’t save us either. What are we trusting in to save us from the judgment that we deserve from God?
