My Philosophy teacher used to tell us in his class, “The more you know, the more you don’t know.” I couldn’t understand what he was trying to imply before—I mean, what? I always thought it should be “the more you know, the more you know!” Right?
Well, he was actually right.
In a Christian life, this principle applies best. The more I draw near to God, and the more I know Him, the more I realized that there are a lot of things that I still don’t know about God. And believe me, even my life span here on earth could not know it all. I could not know everything! Could you?
Every time I study His word, the more I understand that God is too knowledgeable, too intelligent, and too wise for me to comprehend. The more I know about God’s principles, the more I understand that God is not bound in TIME, and therefore, the more I don’t know. Why? Because I’m a human being. I am bound in time. My life here on earth is bound in time. But God’s time is not. When I go to heaven, and face God, I believe even then I still would not know everything about God.
But God doesn’t see how big you have known Him, and that’s great. What matters most to God is how you have truly believed in His Son, and how you have accepted that Jesus died on the cross for us to be saved—in your heart, soul, and mind.
