‘Hope in the storms of life’
From Psalm 29 we learn that storms are a metaphor for the conflicts of life. The voice of God is heard in thunder, wind-
Job 28 is a hymn celebrating the divine mystery of wisdom. Digging into the depths of the earth, as miners do in search of gold, gemstones and precious metals, will not uncover the depths and foundations of wisdom. It is more precious than gold or gemstones, and its mystery even eludes death and the custodian of the gates of the place of the dead. Its power can be discerned in natural disasters, but it is hidden from the sight of the birds of prey who watch and observe everything on the face of the earth. Wisdom is hidden in the divine and is only granted in tiny part to those humans who acknowledge the rightful place of the divine in their own lives and in the world.
1 Corinthians continues the paradoxical dialogue about the nature of the wisdom of God. In the arrogance and pride of the young believers in Corinth, who inadvertently embraced the pride of their Greek heritage and history of their city and who used that pride to justify their own competitiveness, the deficiency of human wisdom is exposed. Paul ingeniously built an argument by which their pride was revealed and they were brought to their rightful place, the lowest of all peoples. The wisdom of humans is not equated with divine wisdom.
