Packer on Wisdom

16 02 2010

Here’s some quotes from Packer in his discussion on ‘wisdom’ in ‘Knowing God.’

“”For the truth is that God in his wisdom, to make and keep us humble and to teach us to walk by faith, has hidden from us almost everything that we should like to know about the providential purposes which he is working out in the churches and in our own lives.” p.119

“We can be sure that the God who made this marvellously complex world-order…knows what he is doing, and ‘doeth all things well’, even if for the moment he hides his hand. We can trust him and rejoice in him, even when we cannot discern his path.” p.120

“Your part is to use all the good sense and enterprise at your command in exploiting the oppurtunities that life before you.” p.120
