Sensitive Knowlege

"...knowing isn't everything. 
If it becomes everything, some people
end up as know-it-alls who treat others
as know nothings. 
Real knowledge isn't that insensitive."

1 Corinthians 8:7 msg

He gave up His rights —
everything is His, 
power, majesty, glory and honor.

And yet, 

for me, 

He set it aside.

He knows all —
yet patiently leads and 
teaches me in my ignorance.
He bends down,
reaches out,
lifts up.

Growing in knowledge and freedom —
but also in love and patience.




Fan into flame.

Draw alongside.

"We sometimes tend to think we know all 
we need to know to answer 
these kinds of questions — 
but sometimes our humble hearts can 
help us more than our proud minds.
We never really know enough until we 
recognize that God alone knows it all."

1 Corinthians 8:1-3 msg

"But God does care when you use your freedom
carelessly in a way that leads a 
Christian still vulnerable to those old associations
to be thrown off track."

1 Corinthians 8:9 msg

"If I speak God's Word with power, 
revealing all His mysteries and
making everything plain as day, 
and if I have faith that says to a mountain,
"Jump," and it jumps, but I don't love,
I'm nothing.

1 Corinthians 13:2 msg
