*Ignorance is not bliss*



Ignorance (i.e Lack of Knowledge):
.
Also it is not good for a soul to be without knowledge, And he sins who hastens with his feet. The foolishness of a man twists his way, And his heart frets against the LORD. Proverbs 19: 2-3
.
Here, we are warned not to be ignorant...ignorance can kill you, what you don't know will KILL you...God loves knowledge seekers...if you read the book of Kings, Solomon asked God for"understanding," but God did not just give understanding, but He also gave WISDOM...which is the foundation of all understanding.
.
Without knowledge, you can't know about salvation, if you don't want to know, then you really won't know, you will be adamant not to do any research, you would be so determined not to study the word of God, and so determined not to know what God wants for your life...and of course everything you would ever do would be OPPOSITE to what God wants you to do (because you think what you don't know won't kill you), but noooo...you would be heading towards a dangerous destiny...a destiny without salvation.
.
So take time out to open up the dusty book of knowledge in your dresser at least once a day. Take time out to read at least a verse (which is about two lines) from the wise book of God, Take time out on Sunday, or any other day of the week, to listen to a wise teacher, pastor or anyone ordained by God. OH BLESS THE DAYS OF LITTLE BEGINNINGS...because everyone begins somewhere...and then you start climbing up the ladder of knowledge and wisdom, step by step...but you have to start from somewhere... DON'T REMAIN IGNORANT...GONE ARE THE DAYS OF IGNORANCE...
.
I wrote this a very long time ago, after reading Proverbs 19 (found it while going through my old emails today and decided to post it up on this blog). Gone are the days of ignorance...are you seeking more knowledge today? Or do you still NOT want to know?

i believe it was Joyce Meyer who said, "the amount of time you spend with God will determine what you can get out of him". if you take time to study the word, then you get to know scriptures which you can use in different situations.

The other part of it though is - now you know what God says about certain situations, you will have "no excuse" for not doing the right thing at certain times, which is not always easy..

Thanks very much for this post. It's really true. We all need to spend more time with God cuz that is when he would reveal the deep secrets to us.

Thanks and I appreciate ur comments on my blog.

Stay blessed and keep up the great work

Hmmm... WISDOM is profitable... Ignorance is an offense and the end is destruction. (My people perish for lack of knowledge).

He who has ears...

Ms. Elcee...God bless u too darling. How's ur end madam?

Jem...easter was great!!!! Awesome! (Especially the reflection about what it really stands for). Thanks

Webround...its the second part that isn't easy at all o. But I guess we have to do the first part first, abi? God help us...lol. I'm thinking surrounding ourselves with the BODY of Christ is very important, because when one sees other role models, they'll be more empowered to join the band-wagon with this phrase at the back of their minds, "I can DO this!"

Tony...I really missed ur presence...how have u been? Dude!

Freelance...it was a pleasure leaving that comment because the revelation from that post is definitely for life. Hey, thanks for the reminder that it is when we spend more time with Him that He reveals His deepest secrets to us...whew! It feels good to know that...

Uzezi...my sentiments exactly...

Chickito...nuff said, abi? Thinking abt it more, it is indeed an offense (even to ourselves) to be ignorant...it's just like not studying where different bacteria strains are located in public to prevent ourselves from embracing bacteria. Surely, we must want to know those types of things because they can cause DISEASE.

Prettylyf...*smile*
