I love learning, trying to understand society, smaller groups, individuals, and things. It’s something I’ve loved my whole life and continue to do daily. There’s so much I don’t know, so much I can learn through books by people who have lived before me, through conversations with people who live now, and through observation of the world around me.
Some Christians think of the Bible as being the place where we can gain all knowledge, wisdom, and understanding. But I have found comfort in the Bible because it teaches me that I cannot gain all knowledge, wisdom, and understanding. Isaiah 40:28 says “Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.”
It’s comforting to know that I am not meant to be the one holding all the knowledge, wisdom and understanding. God is the one holding it all, with His infinite wisdom and goodness. That doesn’t mean I’ll stop trying to learn, understand, and grow. But it does mean that I need to recognize I can never see things fully, that I should hold my understandings loosely because I can only see a tiny part of the vastness of this world.
