The cross, instrument of torture and death, raised aloft as a sign of glory, continues to confound the wisdom of this world. God’s work of salvation stands human expectations on their head: humility is exaltation, wounds are healing, death is life.—Magnificat, September 14, 2019

The world’s wisdom that is founded upon selfishness and pride knocks on the doors of my heart and mind all day long. I pray for God’s wisdom constantly, that it can invade my being. I would like to be filled to the brim with his Word, so that the world’s wisdom finds itself crowded out, with no vacancies within the inn of my being.
When pride comes, then comes disgrace; but with the humble is wisdom.—Proverbs 11:2
A man of understanding sets his face toward wisdom, but the eyes of a fool are on the ends of the earth.—Proverbs 17:24
He who trusts in his own mind is a fool; but he who walks in wisdom will be delivered.—Proverbs 28:26
Know that wisdom is such to your soul; if you find it, there will be a future, and your hope will not be cut off.—Proverbs 24:14
