What could these things have in common; sorrow, grief and wisdom? Sorrow and grief is something we try to avoid and wisdom is something we all desire.
Let's dig deep into God's word to discover some surprising gems of truth on this subject.
Of all the Bible writers, Solomon seemed to have the most to say about wisdom. Let's start our journey in Ecclesiastes chapter 1.
"For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow." - Ecclesiastes 1:18
What a strange thing to say! Wisdom and knowledge produce what? Grief and sorrow. Interesting... Can you think of another famous verse in the Bible that speaks about grief and sorrow? Or rather about a man of grief and sorrow?
