What You Don’t Know

Bible in a Year: Genesis 27-28  Matthew 8:18-34

for I know whom I have believed—
2 Timothy 1:12

Today’s Scripture:
2 Timothy 1:8-14

Do you know an aglet from a tang? Would you recognize duff if you walked on it?

It’s not essential to know these terms to make it through life successfully. If you didn’t know that an aglet is “the covering on the end of a shoelace,” that a tang is “the projecting prong on a tool,” or that duff is “the decaying matter found on a forest floor,” it’s not all that important. You could always look it up.

We can be glad we don’t have to know everything to get by in this world. We often can depend on someone else’s knowledge. For instance, I don’t know how to fix the brakes of my car—but as long as someone else knows and can fix them, I’m okay.

There is a knowledge, however, for which we are individually responsible if we expect to enter the Kingdom. I’m talking about knowing the Torah personally. We live in an age of expanding information, and a personal relationship with 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 (God) is the only way to live wisely and be prepared to meet His Son 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 (Jesus). Paul had this in mind when he said, “I know whom I have believed.”

Do you know the Creator of the Universe and His Torah?  Do you know the One who died for you and can forgive your sins? Unless you know Him and the Torah, all other knowledge is insignificant.

Reflect & Pray

Eternal life is knowing 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄
Through 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 ha’Mashiaḥ His only Son;
Such knowledge is life’s greatest quest
Without it life has not begun.

To know the Torah and 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 is the greatest of all knowledge.
