My grandson and I went on a nice long walk. We had an agenda, but we were in no rush so we were able to enjoy our surroundings. We met many people along the way, but there was one in particular that stood out; she worked in a jewelry store, probably the owner's wife. She spoke a little English, but understood none. My grandson said it best, “how could you not know English, everyone speaks English!” We were there to see if they had a setting so we could make a sharks tooth necklace for him. Unfortunately, she didn’t understand what we needed, so she couldn’t help us. So we left there without accomplishing our goal. The same thing is true about knowing God; you can’t truly speak or understand His language if you haven’t studied His word. Like the woman trying to speak to me without understanding is the person trying to explain God’s word without any knowledge of it.
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15
