Acts 17:11–12; 18:24–28; 1 Corinthians 1:10–12; 3 John 1:9–10
Periodically, Scripture warns us against having knowledge as an end in itself. For example, without love, knowledge alone can be a source of pride. Without humility, it can lead us into a judgmental attitude. Without wisdom, it can result in idealism and a perfectionistic spirit. Knowledge needs a buffer . . . something to soften it, give it perspective, make it workable and real. Perhaps the very best companion for knowledge is discernment. Let’s spend a little time thinking about that and discovering some ways to mix both into our lives.
