“O Timothy, guard the deposit entrusted to you. Avoid the irreverent babble and contradictions of what is falsely called “knowledge,” for by professing it some have swerved from the faith. Grace be with you” (1 Timothy 6:20-21).
The teaching of “higher knowledge” continues to this day. Inquiring minds want to know. You have been called into the true faith and although you hunger for knowledge, it is righteousness that we should long for. Seek first the Kingdom of God and then all else that is needed will be added. Do not chase after the vain things of this world but be transformed by the truth of the revelation of the Lord.
Lord, You have made the Good Confession and have revealed the truth of salvation. There are those in this world who chase after knowledge. Is it not the chasing of knowledge that got us into this sin mess? Help me, Lord, not to be intentionally ignorant, but neither to seek anyone other than You, for You have given us the words of everlasting life. You are the Word who has come in the flesh.
Lord Jesus, You have spoken the word of truth and initiated me into Your body through the gift of the baptism You gave me. Guide me, Lord, so that I may now and always abide humbly in You. Guide me to live into this life of faith You have given me. Lead me to understand more fully each day the truth You have revealed in faith. Thank You Jesus for the life I have in You. Amen.
