Know It All

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and discipline. Proverbs 1:7 HCSB

At times through the years my children have accused me of being a “Know-It-All”. When my children were young, they would sometimes respond with the age old question of “Why?” which would evoke my response of, “Because I said so.” As a joke, my children gave me a driver’s license that has a picture of Albert Einstein on it. The implication was that I thought I was as smart as Albert Einstein.

Nobody likes a “Know-It-All,” who tends to be a person that is closed minded and thinks he is the only one who is right. Solomon calls that type of person a fool who despises wisdom, learning, and discipline. A wise person fears the Lord and seeks wisdom from God. Realistically, God is the only One who “knows it all.”

Challenge: Fear the Lord. Only God can provide true wisdom. God is the beginning of knowledge and wisdom. Discipline yourself. Don’t be a “Know-It-All.”
