Throughout history man has had this ravenous hunger for knowledge and wisdom, as we see it.
   We need to know things about everything.
   We study everything, no matter how invasive it may be.
   As long as it's all in the name of study.
   What do we do with what we learn, or what we think we know?
   We believe we are doing it all for the betterment of mankind. But, are we really?

   I have to question man's motives.
   Deep down we just want to be bigger than we actually are, in stature wise.
   We are still building our towers of Babel.
   Man has come to believe we are the same as a god.
   You can see it in all of man's religions.
   We have in turn deceived ourselves.
   God calls our knowledge and wisdom below the knowledge and wisdom of His own.
   Our righteousness is but rags.
   We don't deserve what He has given us.
   The power to think for ourselves. To choose and decide for ourselves.
   We are so far from Eden.

   Is it any wonder the world is in the state it is?
   And we, mere little specks of sand, blame God Almighty.
   Shame on God?! No, shame on man!

   What does man know?
   We just do what we want. Calling ourselves knowledgeable and wise.
   We see ourselves as kings and lords.
   And in some ways, gods.
   It must just break God's heart to see His own children go their own ways, further and further away from Him, our Father.
   God only wants to be in our little, insignificant lives. To have a personal, intimate relationship with us, His children.
   Think about that. The Creator of the Universe, who sent His only begotten Son to die for each and every one of us. The One who holds all of Creation in the mighty palm of His hand. Calls us His children, brothers and sisters, everyone.
   Our pride has gotten in the way, we have turned our backs on a loving God, the God of all love.
   We have grown so much in what we think is wisdom and knowledge that we have grown blind to the fact that we are being lied to, we are lying to ourselves, and accepting it as truth.
   We need to realize just what it means to be saved and covered by grace and an unfailing love, such as God's.
   All His prodigal need to come back home.
   We need to open our eyes and see all that we need to know is that we have all we need already. All our wants are provided for, and all the desires of our hearts have been fulfilled.
   Sadly, man by nature, selfish, continue to do what we want. And that includes those who profess to believe and follow Him.
   We have been and had deceived ourselves.
