DO YOU DESIRE KNOWLEDGE EARNESTLY ?

“Knowledge enhances your capacity and that is the chief purpose of life”~”Divine-Royalty”

There’s a story about a proud young man who came to Socrates asking for knowledge. He walked up to the muscular philosopher and said, “O great Socrates, I come to you for knowledge.”

Socrates recognized a pompous numbskull when he saw one. He led the young man through the streets, to the sea, and chest deep into water. Then he asked,”What do you want?” “Knowledge,

O wise Socrates,” said the young man with a smile. Socrates put his strong hands on the man’s shoulders and pushed him under. Thirty seconds later Socrates let him up. “What do you want?” he asked again. “Wisdom,” the young man sputtered, “O great and wise Socrates.”

Socrates crunched him under again. Thirty seconds passed, thirty-five. Forty. Socrates let him up. The man was gasping. “What do you want, young man?” Between heavy, heaving breaths the fellow wheezed, “Knowledge

O wise and wonderful…” Socrates jammed him under again Forty seconds passed. Fifty. “What do you want?” “Air!” he screeched. “I need air!” “When you want knowledge as you have just wanted air, then you will have knowledge.”

And what’s the best knowledge?

The knowledge of God. Treat God’s Word as an essential in life that you won’t survive on this earth without it. Eat it and breathe it every single day. It’s way more important than knitting, gardening, or whatever hobbies that you have that occupies your time.

Never forget to create time for God’s Word, it will beautify every other knowledge you have acquired and bring out the best of knowledge in you. And the application of knowledge is WISDOM! While Wisdom is probable to direct

  2. As you say the application of knowledge is WISDOM and to apply it you need air, through your nose, for your health, which doesn’t cost anything, because it is given to us freely! Many thank for your posts for my soul:) Very best regards Martina
