They Became Fools
Who try to find some other way To go to their reward.
I don’t believe the modernists, Who scoff at God’s true Word.
They try to alter Holy Writ So all the lines are blurred.
I don’t believe the monkey-men, Who say that we evolved –
Those who say the riddle of Life’s origin they’ve solved.
I don’t believe the bone peddlers, Who teach eons of time.
They say that homo sapiens From lower forms did climb.
The way it all boils down, now, For man in his own eyes –
More foolish he continues, Though thinking himself wise.

But if we would follow after God and do His will, we will find the happiness that He promises us in His Word. He tells us in Proverbs 16:20 “He that handleth a matter wisely shall find good: and whoso trusteth in the Lord, happy is he.” Yes, “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom (Prov 1:7; 9:10; Ps 111:10).” And then again, "Behold, the fear of the LORD, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding (Job 28:28)." The essence of the "Fear of the LORD" is following God's will and accepting the offer of free salvation through His Son Jesus Christ, for it is only through accepting this salvation that a man truly abandons his own will - his own way - his own wisdom - and receives God's gift God's way. In John 14:6, Christ says, "I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
So friend, the choice is out there for you - your way - the way which seems right to man - ending in death - or God's way - through faith in His beloved Son - a way that leads to everlasting life. Y'know, it's pretty much a no brainer. Follow Spurgeon's advice below - our verse says "be not wise" (in your own eyes, that is) and Spurgeon say "be wise" (and look to God).
