Becoming Wise

By: Isaac Bowling #292438

I don’t really consider myself a religious person, but years ago I read a Bible verse that changed my life.

“If anyone among you seems to be wise, they shall become foolish so they may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness, In God’s eyes it is written, He catches the wise in their own tricks.” 1 Corinthians 3:18/19.

This verse means so much to me because when I read it I believed that what I was doing was right, and that I knew what was best for me and those around me. But in fact it is the contrary. What I was doing was foolish and wrong, and it actually led me to come to prison. And it wasn’t until I became a “fool” that I became wise to my ways and changed my life and direction for the better.
