The Necessity of Making the Bible Central to Your Life

For the wisdom of this world is folly with God. For it is written, "He catches the wise in their craftiness," and again, "The Lord knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are futile." (1 Cor 3:19-20 ESV)

Here is what John Calvin says about this verse, " This is an excellent passage for bringing down the confidence of the flesh for here God declares from above that whatever the mind of man conceives in purpose is simply nothingness when it is compared to the word of God."  That tells me that we should value the word above all others words we put our minds to on a daily basis - radio, TV, newspaper, FB, tweets, instagram, etc.  We should read it, put our minds to it, meditate on it, and study it.    Are you valuing the word of God above all others words that daily vie for your attention?
