Knowledge and Spirituality

Proverbs 1:7
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Knowledge is power and information is very important in this world but this shouldn’t be a substitute for God in our lives.

There are Christians who have abandoned the quest for knowledge or information and all they want is to relax and see God work through them. On the other hand, there are Christians who are so knowledgeable about a lot of (earthly) things that this has substituted the place of God in their lives. Every issue or problem is addressed by reading articles online to get an answer.

Thanks to the global village we live in today, there are answers online to almost any question or issue. As believers, we are meant to be a blend of knowledge, information and spirituality. God should be the first we remember anytime we have an issue. We should pray about such first and then work according to the leading of the spirit. Remember, everything that happens physically has already been decided spiritually.

Imagine solving a problem both physically and spiritually. Such will be gone forever. In conclusion, let’s gain knowledge and be informed but never let these take the place of God in either a small or big issue. God is a good Father and He wants to be involved in everything that concerns us.
