Jeremiah 9: 23-24

It is amazing how much intelligence man has accumulated over the past 6000 years. It has taken time to arrive from cave living and stone wheels to luxury homes and space travel. Knowledge is a precious commodity to those who not only seek it, but build on it. Along with knowledge comes a great sense of pride. Great nations have risen in lieu of using their minds in a quest for survival. Great nations with great wisdom and power in itself can be a great downfall if not handled with care. In the beginning it is man who came from God, yet man sees no need to recognize Him. God has never changed in His Wisdom and Power and yes His Glory. Man has forgotten God but God has not forgotten man. God loves us with an Everlasting Love and gave His Only Son Jesus to die for us to prove it.
Prov. 3: 5-6. Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding . In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
