In a newspaper this week I read that employment has improved so much that by the end of the year some American cites will have a labor shortage and see workers demanding higher wages. This unfortunate situation will be bad for the economy. The above is representative of the wisdom of the world. Those who understand the first two sentences of this blog, will have a hard time accepting the wisdom of the cross or what Jesus was doing when he blessed the poor, those who mourn, the meek, etc. Jesus’ wisdom involved knowing suffering, being willing to serve others, and having a pure love for truth and beauty. The world’s wisdom involves avoiding failure, demanding concessions from those who serve, limiting the truth we tell ourselves or others, and believing that cost determines value (beauty).
