Yes, great men are not always wise! Just take a look at the life of the following great men and you will discover that something was missing in their lives: Young Pablo Picasso, a Spanish painter and sculptor living in Paris, kept himself warm by burning his own paintings in times of severe poverty and cold.
Van Gogh committed suicide while painting “Wheat field with Crows. “Alexander Graham Bell made a talking doll that said, “Mama” when he was a young boy in Scotland. But he never telephoned his wife or mother (Mama) who were both deaf.
Socrates committed suicide by drinking the poison called hemlock. Socrates was considrered as the, “Solomon” of his generation. He doubted the general opinion, so he proceeded to test the fact of who was wiser by approaching other men considered wise by the people of Athens—statesmen, poets, and artisans—in order to prove he was not the wisest.
Questioning them however, Socrates concluded: While each man thought he knew a great deal and was wise, in fact they knew very little and were not wise at all. Socrates then concluded that indeed he was the wisest and concluded that: “While so-called wise men thought themselves wise and yet were not, he himself knew he was not wise at all, which, paradoxically, made him the wiser one since he was the only person aware of his own ignorance.”
Wow! When the Bible declares that great men are not always wise, there is a lot of wisdom in the declaration! THE WISDOM OF GOD WAS MISSING IN THE LIVES OF THE MEN MENTIONED ABOVE! No man is sufficiently great without the wisdom of God! When your life is connected with the wisdom of God, you will live an extraordinary life. According to today’s Word, without the Spirit of God in man and without the presence of divine inspiration, there is no understanding (Job 32:8).
Indeed, great men are not always wise neither does old age give wisdom (Job 32:9). No wonder the Bible says God has chosen the foolish things to confuse the wise. He has chosen weak things to dribble great men and women (1 Corinthians 1:26-28). THIS IS CALLED DIVINE SURPRISE! When there is wisdom, you manifest the highest value attainable in life.
It will add value to your life, family and ministry and turn you into an extraordinary soul!
