REAL MEN SEEK WISDOM

I once heard someone say: “If he knew half as much as he thinks he knows he’d be dangerous!” Granted there may have been a smidgen of snide sarcasm laced in the person’s statement (and the demeanor in which they said it), but it is true of some people; they think they know it all. I think the older I get, the more I think I know reveals how much I really don’t know which, in turn, motivates me to get busy to really learn what I need to know! Do you ever feel like that last statement – confused?

Here is a word of insight for you: Knowledge and information are increasing quicker than ever, but wisdom is on the decline. With the increasing advantages of technology we have a culture that is ‘learning’ things we didn’t know before. With that increase in technology we are also disseminating information quicker (i.e. Internet, smart phones, computers running at faster speeds, countless Wi-Fi Hot Spots, etc.). However, humanity is abounding in HEAD knowledge while we are in a famine of HEART knowledge. It is almost as though humanity is removing the thought of the Creator and the creation is worship creation. The sad thing is this is not the first time in human history we’ve seen this. It seems to be a revolving door – a vicious cycle in the write of human history.

In this series of “What The Bible Says About REAL MEN” I want to key in on the need for wisdom. Knowledge is an important tool. Every man should be constantly sharpening his skills in increasing his knowledge base. Yet, the Bible has much more to say about WISDOM than it does knowledge. Proverbs 4:7 states, “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding” (NKJV). Here is how the Amplified Version renders this same passage: “The beginning of Wisdom is: get Wisdom (skillful and godly Wisdom)! [For skillful and godly Wisdom is the principal thing.] And with all you have gotten, get understanding (discernment, comprehension, and interpretation)”. Continue reading

PASTOR’S APPRECIATION DAY 2014

1 Timothy 5:17, “The elders who direct the affairs of the church well are worthy of double honor, especially those whose work is preaching and teaching” (NIV).

Today is a special day at Crossroads World Outreach Center (CWOC). This is the day we will honor those who serve in pastoral capacities in this ministry. I consider myself blessed by having these folks to work with in the Kingdom of God. They serve in various capacities and help me with giving spiritual oversight to the sheep that God has seen fit to entrust to our care. They assist in visitation, counseling, planning, implementation, prayer, preaching, teaching, and a variety of other venues of ministry. Today, we honor (alphabetically) Betty Franks, Kim Hodge, Marcia Kolberg, Teresa McCurry, Ashlyn Oren, Michelle Prevatte, Alex Scott, and Jeannine Scott.

On the first Sunday of October 2008, Kim and I came for what we thought was a ‘visit’ to CWOC. This ministry was entering into a transition of leadership in the position of Senior Pastor. Dr. Jesse Simmons, the previous Senior Pastor, had been after me (harassing or hounding – whichever you want to call it – I type while smiling) to come and visit. His words were, “I have about twelve resumes on my desk. Yours is not one of them, but God keeps speaking your name.” Out of respect for Dr. Simmons, I eventually conceded to come for a ‘visit’ and share with this congregation what I perceived to be a word from the Lord concerning its future. I had no inclination that the Hodge family would be a part of that future. But God…. Continue reading
