Never before have people had so much information at their fingertips. We swim in a river of information – notifications of social media posts, sports scores, economic data, breaking news, and a barrage of political opinions overwhelm us. In the constant barrage of information, alerts, and updates, people increasingly struggle to make sense of everything, to separate the true from the false, and see what’s meaningful in a sea of trivia.
Getting information is easy. Growing wise takes work.
The Bible teaches in Proverbs 2:6 that the Lord gives wisdom. He is the source of both knowledge AND understanding. In the Walking in Wisdom message series, we will turn to the Scriptures to take a critical look at our information consumption. We will discover how to filter what we hear, see and read, so that we can lean into trustworthy sources (like the Bible) and question less trustworthy sources (like social media). As we learn to walk in wisdom, we experience less information overload, our priorities grow more focused, we make better decisions, and grow closer to God, the ultimate source of wisdom.
