During a recent speech, a politician made a statement that defied logic. He said the CIA was not gathering names of people or content in harvesting information from emails, etc. Logic asks, "if you are gathering no names or content, what is the purpose of gathering information at all?"
I then received a call from the Healthcare Marketplace telling me to call another number 24/7 and they would be able to assist me in finalizing my application for insurance and could answer all my questions. Unfortunately, the lady at the other number, could not help me, did not know what I was talking about and had no answers to my questions. She asked was I sure I had an application. Logic said, of course I do or the first lady would not have known to call me.
I remember my grandmother told my mother she couldn't go in the water until she learn how to swim, which of course you can't learn without going in the water.
I believer in today's society, if you have simple logic and/or common sense, you can rule the world. You would be the smartest person in a sea of non-thinkers.
God told Solomon he could ask for anything. What Solomon wanted was wisdom to rule the people properly.
Many theologians say God's wisdom and logic are opposed to one another. I disagree. Without God's wisdom, logic lacks foundation.
Get wisdom! Get understanding! . . . Do not forsake her, and she will preserve you; love her and she will keep you. Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom. Ands in all your getting, get understanding. Exalt her, and she will promote you; she will bring you honor, when you embrace her. She will place on your head an ornament of grace; a crown of glory she will deliver to you.
