Wisdom's Corner

Everyone has a head. Your head is very important. Your body not only would not know what to do without a head but your body would be dead without your head.

You say that is so simple. Everyone knows that. You are right. But, have you ever seen someone with two heads? What do you think would happen if someone had two heads?

Well, the body goes where the head tells it to go. So, if a body had two heads it would be trying to go two places at once. The body would not know which head to obey. Imagine that this person with two heads is in a burning building. Both heads are telling the person to get out but in different directions. The body doesn't know which head to obey and is completely confused. Because of the confusion the person ends up not going anywhere and burns up in the fire.

Ever so often a baby is born with two heads. The baby does not live very long because the body cannot obey two heads.

Of course, we must know what to do to ask Him for help and protection. We get this by reading and studying the Bible. So get God's wisdom.

So we see that if a person has no head they cannot live. And if they have two heads they cannot live. It is very important that the body have just one head.

Christ is the head of the church which is called His body. In Colossians 1:12-18 we can read about this. The body must obey the head. Since the head of the church is Christ, we must follow Christ. We cannot try to have two heads when it comes to spiritual matters. If we do, we will die.

So study your Bible and learn all you can about Jesus. It is His wisdom that will tell you the right way to go so that you do not end up dying in the fire of hell.

If any of this is hard to understand, ask an adult to help you. And until next time, keep reading your Bible.
