The Deadliest of Ideas

One of the deadliest thoughts,
is also extraordinarily common;
"I know everything that I need to."

     Whether conscious or subconscious, we live in the midst of this well established lie.  We breathe in the air of this idea so often that we cannot comprehend the desperation of our situation; we walk every day, blind to the depth of our own ignorance.

     The antidote may be found in the humble confession of and repentance for our foolishness, and in the beginning of a new journey onto a new path; purposeful lifelong learning.  Relentless are the portions of Scripture which teach about wisdom, and the pursuit thereof.

     Eternity may in fact be forever learning about and increasing in knowledge of the Almighty, that we might evermore experience new reasons to praise him.

The beginning of wisdom of this: Get wisdom,
and whatever you get, get insight.
- Proverbs 4:7

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,
and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight.
- Proverbs 9:10
