    Vs. 31 - A Good reminder. We shouldn't think to much of ourselves. We have much to boast about if we center our life and conversation on Jehovah God. Could we ever run out of good things to say about our creator? Surely not!

  • AKINYEMI OJO
    Reading vs 21, I began to think what was that wisdom of God by which d world was supposed to know God as God? Then it dawned on me that d Bible was referring to d wisdom of creation. Romans Chp 1 says "Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.20 For the invisible things of him from d creation of the world are clearly seen". Evolution is satanic.
