Get in Step with the Pursuit of Greater Knowledge: Bishop Jakes
You don’t have to know everything to achieve your destiny. A successful heart surgeon doesn’t necessarily know how to carve the Thanksgiving turkey. Hus cutting knowledge is being used where he can give the greatest benefit to humanity. When you know what you need to know, you can benefit other rather than be ashamed of limits of your knowledge. The pursuit of knowledge is an adventure rather than an admission of ignorance or limitation. The willingness to move into the vistas if greater knowledge is an important quality that will allow Destiny to open her doors to you.
But the pursuit of knowledge is simply for the sake of knowing is not a good Destiny strategy. You can know a lot about a lot of different topics, but if you’re not using knowledge to fulfill the destiny that gives life purpose,what is it? Who wants to be the person sitting at home watching Jeopardy! and answering every question right? Use your knowledge for a purpose that serves humanity. It’s one to have a knowing mind, but it’s quite another to have an inquiring mind.
The journey to Destiny necessitates a curious Mind. You need courage to admit what you do not know, to seek knowledge. Strive for an inquiring mind that us perpetually turned toward the far-reaching arms of knowledge. If you limit yourself to what you already know, you’ll only do what you’ve always done, and you’ll keep on getting what you’ve always had.
Some do want they’ve always had. They feel more secure, more in control in the tiny confine of life rooted in ignorance. They are content in a haze if ignorance. They choke whatever and whoever is under their influence so they can manage it easily and feel in control. The refuse the knowledge and growth, fearing they may not be able be to manage or be in control. Examples are the small business owners who threatened by the expensive ideas of a young recruit from a larger company; the stage mother whose management of her son’s singing career limits hus exposure to she can understand and control, stifling his opportunities;, and the Pastor whose congregation is growing beyond hus management skills, so he stifling the church’s growth.
They refusal to learn is the pass that some people use to get through life without confronting reality. …….to be continued……
