Read: 1 CORINTHIANS 8
In elementary school I was the kid some would label a “know it all.” I always did my assignments and strived to learn more than was required. I loved receiving accolades and attention for the knowledge I shared. I felt important and started to think I was better than other kids in my class.
This “know it all” mentality can also ooze into our faith. How does what you know about God impact how you live and treat others? If we aren’t careful, our knowledge can cause us to have a calloused approach with others. Knowledge itself has the ability to puff us up with pride and judgement. On the contrary, knowledge accompanied with love can build us up individually and collectively. God wants love to be our guiding force for all we do and how we engage others. Loving well is how we fulfill the greatest commandment.
Father, I pray that my knowledge of you doesn’t hinder my ability to love like you. Fill me up with more of your love. AMEN.
