The Knowledge Of The Holy One
This man’s utterance to Ithiel:
I am weary, God, but I can prevail.
Surely I am only a brute, not a man;
I do not have human understanding.
I have not learned wisdom,
nor have I attained to the knowledge of the Holy One.
The wise never claim their wisdom,
because the wiser they become,
the more they recognize their foolishness.

The Knowledge Of The Holy
A. W. Tozer
Bend Or Break
Whoever remains stiff-necked after many rebukes,
will suddenly be destroyed—without remedy.
Being obstinate can be a virtue.
Being stubborn however, will break you.
The Depraved vs The Brave
The wicked flee though no one pursues,
but the righteous are as bold as a lion.
I am a big fan of Reality TV.
Some of these reality shows capture criminal behavior in action.
When confronted, these crooks feign innocence.
But, in the end, they flee naked into the night, unpursued,
While the righteous stand stronger than before.
I Love You, Tomorrow
Do not boast about tomorrow,
for you do not know what a day may bring.
Over 100,000 of us who woke up this morning, have no tomorrow.
Do It now, today.
Unfit For A Fool
Like snow in summer or rain in harvest,
honor is not fitting for a fool.
Snow in summer can be refreshing,
but it is anachronistic.
Rain in harvest can be a disaster,
as well as anachronistic.
Honoring a fool is flat out foolish,
and, of course, anachronistic.
