Just Quote’n (Piper) #4
The below quote is from John Piper’s ‘Think’ book;
Divine wisdom begins consciously with God. (‘The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom,” Ps. 111:10) , and is consciously sustained by God and has the glory of God as its conscious goal. Divine wisdom reached its climatic demonstration in the cross of Christ – because the cross was a way of salvation that humbles man and exalts the grace of God. When divine wisdom is revealed to humans in the death of Christ, its effect is to save us and humble us by doing for us what we could not do for ourselves.
