Bible verses about Human Wisdom Foolishness to God
(From Forerunner Commentary)

Luke 16:8  (Go to this verse :: Verse pop-up)

Remember, Jesus addresses this parable to His disciples, so He is giving them advice. "The sons of this world" or this time (the unconverted, who have their minds set on the things of this life) are wiser by nature than "the sons of light" (the converted). Paul concedes that God calls few who are wise by nature because their wisdom is foolishness to God (I Corinthians 1:26-27). Such "wise" people are too proud to surrender to their Creator, so God calls those who are not as shrewd, who sometimes lack forethought, but are teachable.

1 Corinthians 3:18  (Go to this verse :: Verse pop-up)

Paul says, "If any of you think that you know something, forget it. Make like you know nothing. And if you do, you just might become wise." He goes on to explain why in the following verses.
