We all can relate to feeling like we've walked into a trap, we've all done it.
There can be a multitude of reasons:
Maybe it's because we simply don't know any better
Maybe it's because we don't WANT to know any different and have to make changes
Maybe it's because temptation tastes so sweet

Main points for this morning:
1) The wisdom of God is superior to the foolishness of the world, but the ways of God look foolish to the world
2) While we are dead in our sins and behave like the world, we hunger and thirst for things of this world which will never fill us up. Now that we are alive in Christ, and citizens of His eternal kingdom, we should hunger and thirst for the things of His kingdom. We should seek to be filled up on wisdom.
