Knowledge puffs you up with pride, but love builds up. If you think you know something, you do not yet know anything as you should.
1 Corinthians 8 vv. 1, 2.
I’ve been enjoying listening to the Gravity Leadership Podcast. One episode stated:
‘The goal of our discipleship is not moral perfection or cognitive certitude. The goal of discipleship is divine union. Neither airtight theological systems nor perfect behavior are the goal of our salvation. Salvation is being invited to participate in the life of the Trinity, and thus our growth in discipleship involves moving toward more active and intentional participation in that life.’
Do you know people whose goal seems to be know more information to make themselves feel better when speaking to others? They’re not really learning if the result if they puff themselves up rather than grow in love.
