Message
For Every Generation on earth, there are always some categories of people you will surely see in each Generations. We have the foolish set of people, we have the wise set of people, we have the wise foolish people, and we also have the foolish wise people.
Which of these categories of people do we fall into? The first set of people which are the foolish ones.
Proverb 1:7
The fear of the lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despised wisdom and instruction
The best way to know a foolish man is that, such person will not have the fear of the God in him or her! And a man that fail to fear God, will fear what God Has Created. Even Job said that the things I fear came upon me!. It is written that a fool despised wisdom and instruction. A foolish man can never take to Correction and instruction from God and man! Any man that fails to take to correction and yeild to instruction will be the Closest Friend of Destruction!
The second set of people are the wise ones.
Proverb 1:5
A wise man will hear, and Will increase learning and a man of understanding shall attain unto counsels.
Show me a man that is always ready to learn, and I will show you a man that is full of wisdom. A wise man are always ready to hear the word of God. Because a man that pay attention to the word of God is Close to God! It is written “And the word was with God”(John 1:1b).
You can only Get a wise counsels from the wise. The third set of people are the wise foolish people, these people are the once that acknowledged that they have sinned against God, formerly they knew that they have been behaving like a foolish man, but suddenly they began to realized that Some one has paid the price of the foolish act they are behaving, for this purpose they decide to become a wise man by Giving their life’s to Jesus Christ. They knew that without Jesus in a man’s life that man will continue to behave like a fool, and remember it is written that no fools will enter into the kingdom of God. The last set are the foolish wise people.
These are the people because of the pleasures of the King’s meat sold their wisdom away! Our test made us to understand, that the king order the master of eunuchs to bring in wise men, men of understanding, full of skills. But because of the kings meat many of them became foolish. Only four decided that they will not sold themselves to foolishness!
Daniel 1:8
But daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the kings meat, nor with the wine
Many Christian of today the moment little challenges comes our way, we will forget who we are in Christ! Someone reading this devotion, that challenges that look as if it will not end has an expiring date. Do not allow anything to soil your salvation. Only if you can Geniuely surrender your life to Jesus, that is when you can remain a wise man forever.

Do not allow the present pleasure of the earthly kings meat, to denile you of the coming please of the King of Kings meat in Heaven!
