What do you “know?” So often we can get caught up in what we know, or what we think we know. It can be a distraction that causes us to have a higher opinion of ourselves than may be appropriate. How caught up are we in making sure we are always right? Read Paul’s final words to Timothy in 1 Timothy 6:20-21.
O Timothy, guard what has been entrusted to you, avoiding worldly and empty chatter and the opposing arguments of what is falsely called “knowledge”- which some have professed and thus gone astray from the faith. Grace be with you.
1 TIMOTHY 6:20-21 NASB
We have to remember that God is the source of truth and it is only through Him that we know anything at all. Are we focusing on how much we think we know and the knowledge that we believe we have, or are we focused on the One who gives that knowledge?
If we focus only on the knowledge itself, it will be easy to get distracted and start to fall away from God. Our focus must continue to be on Hom and Him alone so that we can guard the truth of the knowledge we have been given.
