Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. 1 Corinthians 1:20-21.

In the last 30 years technology has advanced in leaps and bounds; it is becoming difficult to keep pace. Man has made unusual progress; life on earth is much better. Discoveries multiply and value is added to life. More toys, more tabs, more pads, more cubes, more entertainment. Yet there are so much questions than answers; opinions than solutions. Poverty has multiplied, hunger has increased even with more billionaires. Wars are the norm, death and destruction are at a digital pace. In the midst of so much knowledge, ignorance abounds. Discoveries of new toys, tabs or pills are celebrated as solution. Man cannot still explain death, sleep, joy, sadness, hunger, rage and the like. In spite of all the tech and tabs, life cannot be prolonged beyond a certain level.

Eternity eludes, immortality inaccessible; so we make do with the temporal.

Developments are time bound and discredited by new discoveries; we watch. The word of God remains the same and contemporary in every age; sighs. What is termed foolish by some explains in details life and eternity. Learning without living has given rise to eternal fools but knowledge of God makes wise. The foolishness of scriptures enthrones but the wisdom of the world dethrones. Those that are foolish enough to believe God reign in life.

Tech lack solutions to human situation, it has become part of the problem. Toys lack capacity to offer solutions, Christ is the solution. Christ remains the key to all time salvation in every generation. You cannot be in charge of life and eternity by technology but in Christ. You are overdue for enthronement, Not for a new toy.

Am not waiting for the next version or new tech, I don’t live for things. I live for God in Christ Jesus. That is life, peace, joy and rest. God’s foolishness is superior to man and his wisdom.

He is the eternal solution to all temporal situations.

“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.”Matthew 11:28-29.
