Millionaires, Olympic athletes and superstars excel in shrewdness,strength,talent,beauty,discipline and sometimes just plain good luck. Thus they enjoy the kind of adoration many people crave. But Bible reminds us that even the greatest human honor and splendor will fade away. Alexander the Greatís conquests are legendary, but only crumbling artifacts remain of his empire. God alone is pefectly and eternally glorious by his very nature. Scripture calls him the
ďKing of gloryĒ (Psalm 24:7-10). He is,and always has been, magnificent, power and holy. Everything he does demonstrates his glory, and nothing can detract from it.

Humans, because of our sin, fall far short of Godís perfection. But the amazing truth is that those who trust Jesus Christ for salvation share in his awesome qualities because he puts his Spirit in them. By his Spirit, we can make Godís glorious nature known on earth, just as Jesus did when he was here in human form. When our salvation is completed, Christ will give us perfect, glorified bodies like his heavenly one, untouched by sin or sickness.

The meaning of the word Shrewdness: intelligence manifested by being astute

I wish you would have quoted the verses. Many people may never look them up.

We do fall far short of God's perfection, and it is only when we trust Him in faith does he empower us with the shrewdness to see and understand as we ought.

interesting aspects.

I wasn't sure I got the complete message how God represents shrewdness and I would have liked to have read more detail on this because I thought it was a very interesting idea of tying it in.
