Common Sense

Proverbs 2:6”For the LORD gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding.”

Seventeen Indian banks had loaned nearly Rupees 7000 crores to Business man Mr Vijaya Mallya, the London Court had ordered extradition of Mr Mallya to India  and these are the words of the Chief Magistrate of London court Emma Arbuthnot in a summary statement after  announcing her judgement about Mr.Mallya and the banks that extended loans to him: “the billionaire playboy may have charmed and cajoled the bankers into losing their common sense and persuading them to put their own rules and regulations to one side.”  Observe the words, ”losing their common sense”, what else can be said anyway?   Well, I would like to concentrate only on the phrase ‘losing their common sense’ today!  Listen!

Don’t we live in an era where we have plethora of opportunities and social websites who offer means and ways to enhance knowledge and entrepreneurial acumen; however, my conundrum is despite the ocean of knowledge why do people do stupid things that lacks common sense?  Tell me.  The answer is found in Proverbs 2:6” For the LORD gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding.”  No matter where you got your academic degrees and qualifications, if you don’t have godly wisdom that is offered in the Bible then everything else achieved is vain.  Having worked under top bureaucrats for several years before joining as full-time servant for the Lord, I have watched the most silly mistakes committed by the so-called upper class people.

•    Why would a highly educated woman with high sense of fashion have relationship with a man who has hardly stepped into college, they call this ‘great love’, I call it lack of common sense.
•    Why would an educated man who is already neck-deep into debts, make another huge purchase that would drain his wallet completely? I call this stupidity.
•    Why would a wife continuously trust her husband with payment of bills when he has cheated on her umpteen times? Silly woman with no common sense.  Get alert today and wear on some common sense!

It is a thousand times better to have common sense without education than to have education without common sense.”~ Robert G. Ingersoll
