Have you ever wondered how politicians make promises yet fail to deliver?
How about those who cheat others to become rich?
How about Influencers? They have many followers, yet, they may have fewer degrees (academic experience) than you.
Have you ever wondered why your opinion does not matter even though you are knowledgeable?
People would listen to an Influencer with no idea than listen to you because you are not an influencer.
An armed robber or a burglar would likely get more wealthy than you would though the source of their wealth might be unpopular or illegal.
Generally, those who are influencers are often acceptable in society.
If you are poor, you are likely despised and rejected even if you have ideas.
Job 21:7-9 NET 7 “Why do the wicked go on living, grow old, even increase in power? 8 Their children are firmly established in their presence, their offspring before their eyes. 9 Their houses are safe and without fear, and no rod of punishment from God is upon them.
The wicked prosper even though it uses illegal means.
Kidnappers and drug traffickers make more money through devious methods than the educated genius who went to Harvard.
All these make no sense!
Even Jesus chose Peter, an uneducated fisherman, Matthew, a fraudulent tax collector, and Paul, who killed many people, to do His work.
So, to gain knowledge and power, follow the One who has it all.
