Knowledge is great!

I seem to be reading more and more Piper and this is a little snippet of why we should be reading and wanting more of God through the Bible.

If you want to know God better, it will be costly, and it will be worth it.

For in much wisdom is much vexation, and he who increases knowledge increases sorrow. (Ecclesiastes 1:18)

That is true. It’s true because the more we know…

  • …the more we know that we don’t know.
  • …the more we know that suffering abounds.
  • …the more we are accountable to live up to.
  • …the more dementia will take away.

But it is worth it.

There is gold and abundance of costly stones; but the lips of knowledge are a precious jewel. (Proverbs 20:15)

You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. (John 8:32)
