when I was younger, my Dad told me that you only needed to know three things to be successful in life. I was excited when he heard this, because I figured i could learn three things.
[Of course, my dad not only gave the disclaimer: “three things beyond knowing Christ,” he also told me that he didn’t make these up…everything in it’s place!]
He said: you need to know what you know, what you don’t know, and where to go to get what you don’t know.
It is a challenge to take the time to look inward to possess the self awareness that sees line between what is known and what is unknown. Let to our natural selves, we are happy with our assumptions and self deceptions and the false hope that we have more than enough understanding. When confronted with our lack our lack of knowledge, do we fake it or do we have the humility to ask and learn?
