Passage: 1 Timothy 1:15

The Biggest Of All

This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief

(1 TIMOTHY 1:15)

We say, Wisdom is not good till it is bought; and he that buys it, according to the intention of that proverb, usually smarts for it [PROVERBS 23:23]. The fool is wise in his own conceit; wherefore there is a double difficulty [that] attends him before he can be wise indeed. Not only his folly, but his wisdom, must be removed from him; and how shall that be, but by [the] ripping up of his heart by some sore conviction, that may show him plainly that his wisdom is his folly, and that which will undo him. A fool loves his folly; that is, as treasure, so much is he in love with it. Now then, it must be a great thing that must make a fool forsake his folly. The foolish will not weigh, nor consider, nor compare wisdom with their folly. “Folly is joy to him that is destitute of wisdom.” “As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly” (PROVERBS 15:21; 26:11). So [unwilling] are they when driven from it to let it go, to let it depart from them. Wherefore there must go a great deal to the making of a man a Christian; for as to that, every man is a fool, yea, the greatest fool, the most unconcerned fool, the most self-willed fool of all fools; yea, one that will not be turned from his folly but by the breaking of his heart. David was one of these fools; Manasseh was one of these fools; Saul, otherwise called Paul, was one of these fools; and so was I—and [at] that the biggest of all.
