When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars that you have established; what are human beings that you are mindful of them, mortals that you care for them? Yet you have made them a little lower than God, and crowned them with glory and honor. You have given them dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under their feet… (Psalm 8:3-6).
From the time that the first humans became self-aware realizing that there was more beyond themselves, they have searched for knowledge. We want to know. The pursuit of knowledge is a noble endeavor, and as long as we are seeking to know, we need to seek wisdom as well. Once we human beings acquired the knowledge of good and evil, we needed wisdom to use our knowledge for the good. Human history has demonstrated that while much good has come from our knowledge, much evil has been generated as well.
