As a Christian, it is important to pursue knowledge and wisdom so that we can better understand God and His will for our lives. Ignorance can lead to misunderstanding and even disobedience, so we must make every effort to not be ignorant.
In Hosea 4:6, God declares, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” Ignorance can be a dangerous thing, and it can lead to destruction. That is why we must make an effort to seek knowledge and wisdom, especially when it comes to God’s Word. Proverbs 19:2 says, “Desire without knowledge is not good, and whoever makes haste with his feet misses his way.” We must not only desire knowledge but also take the time to acquire it.
In addition to seeking knowledge, we must also be open to correction and instruction. Proverbs 12:1 states, “Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but he who hates reproof is stupid.” If we are closed off to correction and instruction, we will not grow in our understanding of God and His ways.
Furthermore, we must not be ignorant of Satan’s schemes. In 2 Corinthians 2:11, Paul warns, “so that we would not be outwitted by Satan; for we are not ignorant of his designs.” We must be aware of Satan’s tactics so that we can resist him and stand firm in our faith.
In conclusion, as Christians, we must not be ignorant. We must seek knowledge and wisdom, be open to correction and instruction, and be aware of Satan’s schemes. By doing so, we can grow in our understanding of God and His will for our lives. As Proverbs 2:6-7 says, “For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding; he stores up sound wisdom for the upright; he is a shield to those who walk in integrity.” Let us, therefore, strive to not be ignorant and pursue God’s wisdom with all our hearts.
