When More Feels Like less

Someone has said that the paradox of our age is that we spend more, but seem to have less; we buy more, but enjoy it less. We have bigger houses, but smaller families; more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees, but less common sense; more knowledge, but less judgement; more experts, yet still more problems. We have more medicine, but less wellness. We do larger things, but not better things. We write more, but learn less; we plan more, but accomplish less. The one thing that clearly has not increased is wisdom.
In an age of instant accessibility to vast amounts of data we are tempted to forget that data does not guarantee knowledge, and knowledge does not guarantee wisdom. Yet wisdom is the one thing that reveals to us what we want most, and that is to understand what our lives actually mean. That’s why we need to go to God, the source of all wisdom, and seek it for ourselves.
