Teaching God's Word with Love...
(Elder Florence M. Johnson)
Don't Be A Know-It-All
Some folks are know-it-alls. No matter the subject they already know everything about it and are convinced that no one else can tell them anything. Some people feel this way about God. They don’t attend church since they already know all there is to know, right? Wrong.
Proverbs 1:7 explains that Fear of the Lord (reverential respect for God) is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Knowledge in this scripture means understanding and learning about God, just two of the many benefits of attending a good teaching church with an educated, anointed pastor.
In church we find apostles, prophets, teachers, even miracles! (1 Corinthians 12:27-28). In church we find pastors; leaders appointed by God to feed us knowledge and understanding (Jeremiah 3:15). In church we fellowship and grow with others. Church is a place of Godly learning and we should attend church as often as possible. Hebrews 10:24-25 tells us not to stop gathering together in church (like some folks) but instead, to go more and more often.
No one knows it all. If my tooth aches I find a dentist. If my body is in pain I seek medical attention. If I want to practice law, I study to earn a degree. Don’t be foolish about God. Begin and continue your knowledge of God by finding a good teaching church and stay there. We are happy to welcome you to the First Love Alive Victory Army (FLAVA) Church. Let’s all grow together. Amen!
Minute Meditations are reflections to help us live our lives with excellence.
