Sabbath School                                                                                                9:45 am
 
Superintendent’s Remarks – Peter Griswold
Bible Study Lesson –Proverbs – Words of the Wise
 “Divine Wisdom”
 
       “The LORD possessed me at the beginning of His way, before His works of old” (Proverbs 8:22, NKJV).
        At this stage in Proverbs, wisdom reappears (see Prov. 1:20-21), and it’s clear from the texts for this week that wisdom is truth — the Truth as it exists in God, the source and foundation of all truth.
       This accent on the “absolute” character of truth contrasts with some contemporary thinking, especially in the West, in which truth is seen as relative, contingent, cultural, with one person’s truth different from someone else’s.
       But this concept is not biblical. My truth should be the same as yours, simply because “truth” is universal. It does not belong to anyone in particular but to all humanity, whether or not all humanity recognizes it.
       Interestingly enough, Pilate’s famous question to Jesus, “What is truth?” (John 18:38), came in response to Jesus’ statement “Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice” (John 18:37, NKJV). Truth, absolute truth, exists, and it even speaks to us; what matters for us is whether or not we will listen to, and obey, what it is saying. Source:  Sabbath School Quarterly p. 30.
