The Finite Mind

Where is the wise man? Where is the scholar? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? (1 Corinthians 1:20 NIV)

 A finite mind has a limit in capacity or degree.

 A finite mind is limited in the knowledge of knowing.

 The finite mind is the storehouse for man’s knowledge.

 The ability of our brains to think and comprehend is astounding. There are claims that we only use approximately ten percent of our brain capacity. Our finite mind’s accomplishments have exceeded anyone’s expectations and we continue to excel.

Yet, in all of this, our wisdom and accomplishments are nothing but foolishness if we fail to realize that without God…we are nothing.

  4. Amen, Brother. Glad I changed my theme again…copycat 😀


  5. Last Wednesday I read Pascal’s take on this (not very different from your own).

    Consider the difference between the finite and the infinite. The relative difference between levels of the finite are inconsequential in comparison with the infinite.

    If we consider ourselves wise it can only be in comparison to the finite, and what is that but sin (James 4).


  6. Could you imagine if we tapped the potential of our full brain power?

    Amazing thought, my friend. God doesn’t need 10 percent of our brain. He doesn’t need even one percent. All it takes is a flicker, a nano-microbe of a cell to be awakened to the love of God and then God opens up His wonderful world of blessings to us. What an Awesome God we serve. Thank you for sharing. God bless.


  8. Too true! Our minds have the potential to lead us to a place of independance. Thank God for the mind of Christ…the renewed mind!


Thank you for your thoughts.
