Not knowing is knowing something more

Now our knowledge is partial and incomplete, and even the gift of prophecy reveals only part of the whole picture! I Cor. 13:9

Through scholarship, science, and philosophy we seek to understand ourselves and the world around us. We proceed based on what we think we know, and the more sure we are, the greater our confidence in our own decisions. The disconnects and contradictions reveal the inadequacies in our systems of knowledge and the enormity and completeness of God’s knowledge. In not knowing we experience more complete trust in Him.

Lord, increase both my trust and my understanding.
