I saw a video clip that made me realize that I don’t have enough information to understand everything I read in the Bible. I feel like I’m studying when all I’m doing is reading. I’m pulling apart the scripture verses one by one, as the Holy Spirit leads me; though it’s phenomenal information and words we can live by, I’m beginning to think that my knowledge of it only scrapes the surface; the depths of it are beyond my comprehension. God has given us everything we need to know, but because of our lack of accurate historical information, some of its meaning is lost. The Bible has a lot of rabbit holes, and I don’t think I’ve gone down any of them! It’s time for me to dig deeper and learn some history! If I can stay on one trail, maybe I will discover new information that sorts out the meaning of what I’m reading in scripture; this could take a lifetime. My recommendation for you is, if God gives you a curiosity concerning a biblical matter, stick to it until you get your answers, follow the rabbit down the hole, and sort out the details until you understand the strings that are attached.
For if anyone thinks he is something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself. But let each one test his own work, and then his reason to boast will be in himself alone and not in his neighbor. Galatians 6:3-4
