For this world’s wisdom is foolishness (absurdity and stupidity) with God, for it is written, He lays hold of the wise in their [own] craftiness; And again, The Lord knows the thoughts and reasonings of the [humanly] wise and recognizes how futile they are. (1 Corinthians 3:19-20, AMP)
Prayer – God, we get lots of ideas. They sound wonderful until we measure them against your standards. Sorry. Amen
