Topic: Man’s Limited Knowledge
Text: 1 Corinthians 13:9
On this earth, everything is imperfect and knowledge is limited. No matter how much people may know, they know only a little. No matter how much prophecy is given, it still reveals little. Everything will only be made perfect and complete when the Kingdom of God arrives (the end of age).
Paul wrote this “Because we are now in the state that we have need to learn daily, and therefore we have need of those helps, that is, of the gift of tongues, and knowledge, and also of those that teach by them” according to Geneva Bible Notes. There are people who brag that they are learned, they have wisdom, they know everything, etc. All we have today are limited, knowledge, wisdom, etc. We learn every day and will continue to learn through the word of God.
One of my uncle came picked my baby of one month and as she was moving her mouth, he said, “When we get to heaven, we will ask God if children understands what we say.” This shows that our knowledge is limited. The word of God we read is always new to us every morning. When we read a passage and come back to it the following day, we will get a different meaning. What this implies is that we should rely on the Holy Spirit in everything we do as our knowledge is limited. As we know in part now, we should look forward to that time when we will know everything in full. This should challenge and inspire us to live well and come to the time when we will know everything. Please kindly work towards that. Have a great day.
Food for Thought: 1 Corinthians 8:12
Memory verse: 1 Corinthians 13 verse 9 – For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away.
Prayer: God, grant that I will not boast about knowledge because it is limited.
