Job 28: 12 But where can wisdom be found?
Where does understanding dwell?
13 No mortal comprehends its worth;
it cannot be found in the land of the living.
Look around us today: is wisdom and understanding found in the living? Laughable. If wisdom and understanding won’t be found in the living, then we must look to the dead (custom and tradition) or to God for these.
But society does not want to look to the dead or to God for these; in fact, society is choosing to ignore or even destroy both the dead and God.
These mortals do not comprehend the worth of this wisdom and understanding.
I look at the world and see no understanding
I'm waiting to find some sense of strength
I need to live life
Like some people never will
So find me kindness
Find me beauty
Find me truth
Here before me is my soul
I'm learning to live
I won't give up 'til I've no more to give
No more to give
