Job 28:12



12 But where ['aiyn] shall wisdom [chokmah] be found [matsa']? and where is the place [maqowm] of understanding [biynah]? KJV-Interlinear



12 'But where can wisdom be found? And where is the place of understanding? NASB



The world is full of knowledge. Knowledge is nothing more than all of the little details of life. Bits and pieces of information here and there. Like the minerals and jewels and resources of this world.


Man can dig out knowledge bit by bit, or is masses of information bursts. But, like pieces of a puzzle, information means nothing unless it can be assembled into something useful. And, information or knowledge, has to be assembled into a correct order, otherwise it remains useless. In a wrong order, wrong conclusions are reached and wrong decisions are made based on that incorrect interpretation.


Job will begin explaining that wisdom does not come from this world, but from God.


The knowledge of this world has to be assembled into some semblance of order. That order brings understanding. Understanding is nothing more than recognizing principles that rule life.


Again understanding, if not correct, will lead to wrong principles that one presumes to guide life. And wrong principles again lead to wrong priorities and wrong decisions.


Good decisions provide an abundance of opportunities. Bad decisions limit ones opportunities.


Being able to collect the details of life, and then being able to categorize them into correct guiding principles of life, will ultimately lead you to wisdom. And from wisdom come the decisions that will shape your life, and determine your destiny.


Progressing through life, man can utilize his intelligence and cleverness and ingenuity in order to discover the secrets of this universe, and then transform that information or raw materials into useful or valuable things.


But these 'things' are not wisdom. They are at best, temporary in nature and provide only certain conveniences to human physical life. Which life, is also temporary.


When the things of this world are viewed as a means to an end. That end being happiness. Then the pursuit, of things from his world, is no different than subscribing to philosophies, which are also inventions of this world.


Pursuing karma, or some religious, political or ideological idea is no different than pursuing gold or iron-ore.


When the spiritual side of life is ignored or re-defined, then it is impossible to gain a clear picture of truth, and therefore ones whole future is placed in jeopardy. Your destiny lies in eternity, not after graduation, or after a promotion, or after retirement.
