THE POWER OF KNOWLEDGE (2)
*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*
*THE POWER OF KNOWLEDGE (2).*
Prov 1:22 *"How long, O simple ones, will you love your simple ways? How long will scoffers delight in their scorn and fools hate knowledge?*
*Insight and Highlight.*
Proverbs 7:7 ► *And beheld among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of understanding,*
Knowledge is the cure for ignorance.
There is a common saying that if you think education is expensive, try ignorance.
Many have died for failing to know what they ought to know, Prov 27:12.
Whichever or whatever way we wish to describe the world, God has helped us to raise information.
Through both believers and unbelievers, there is too much information for us to access unless we fail to do so.
Media, information technology, both visual and audio have dwarfed the world. These innovations have made the world a very small place. Most notable is "breaking news" and the rate at which people invest more time on social media to enable disseminate information as quickly as they could.
They spend as much as every second or even less than seconds in the form of Desi, centi, and milliseconds.
However, what you look for on the information technology systems will determine what you will know and run with.
Many have access to information, but they do little or nothing about it.
Prov 22:3 *A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished.*
If you focus on other things, like the immorals, you are unfruitful and a time waster.
If, however, you focus on meaningful things, you will acquire good knowledge.
Paul says, "You will save yourself."
1 Timothy 4:16 *Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.*
He, however, reminds us of wisdom in our approach to those we preached to.
Many have lost the value of information by their wrongful approaches. Either the way they presented it to other people or the way other people received them.
Whichever way, be focused, listen to information, and at times listen to the contents, not necessarily the conveyor or underestimating him/her.
The delivery may be poor, but the content may be valuable.
Not everyone can communicate very well, but the content of the message must open your eyes to something.
Be comfortable with giving audience, Jam 1:19.
Let the fear of God judge your hearts and His word your standard.
Communicate effectively. It enhances knowledge.
Col 4:6 *Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.*
*Call to Word action.*
Communicate respectfully. It encourages listeners and facilitates knowledge.
Eph 4:29 *Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.*
*The Christian clarion duty.*
Ask for wisdom to communicate and respond to information. It helps and makes you effective.
1 Peter 3:15 *But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:*
Lord, help me to pass on informative knowledge with wisdom in Jesus name.
Good morning all, and have a blessed day.
God bless you.
