987 Looking Up to God and Relying on Him Is the Greatest Wisdom

1 No matter how many truths a person understands, how many duties they fulfill, nor how much they experience while fulfilling those duties; no matter how great or small a person’s stature nor in what environment they find themselves, what they cannot do without is looking up to God and relying on Him in all they do. This is the greatest wisdom. Even if a person has understood many truths, should they not rely on God? Some people, who have had faith in God for a longer time, understand some truths and undergo several trials. They might have a bit of practical experience, but they do not understand how to look up to God and rely on Him. Do such people possess wisdom? They are the most foolish of people: They think themselves clever, and do not fear God and shun evil.

2 Though you may have much to say of spiritual theories, this does not mean you understand the truth, nor less does it mean you understand God’s will in everything. There is a very important lesson here: People must look up to God in everything they do. If they look up to God in everything they do, then they can rely on God, and only those who rely on God have a way forward. There is a serious issue here—in many things, people act on experiences and rules they understand, as well as some things they imagine. It is then quite difficult to look up to God and rely on Him, and easy to act on one’s own desires. Though such a person may do no evil, God is still not satisfied. Therefore, looking up to God and relying on Him in everything is the greatest wisdom.
