I visited a church the other day, and I made a comment and someone began clapping, but stopped quickly when the pastor gave him a quizzical look. It’s crazy to me! I only know what I know from what I have exposed myself to, and what I have learned. And you too can learn much more than what I know…because trust me the more you know, the more you realize that you don’t know…
We look at famous people who speak eloquently and wish to be like them, but we are not willing to put in the investment to know what they know. Do we care what books they read to get to the conclusion that they have gotten to? Do we care what kind of people they hang around? Do we care how long it took them to become the people that they are now? Do we even care if their character is comparable to their level of knowledge?
No! we just want to worship these people and act as if we can never be as smart as them. No my dear you are already very smart. Matter of fact the only reason you may not know as much is because you haven’t realized that you have access to so much quality information, and you are free to use that information, or alternatively you are too lazy to become the person that you were created to be.
Why don’t you do something this week that you have never done before…look up someone that you admire and find out more about their life. Get an autobiography if you can or read a book that they may have mentioned during a speech.
Remember as a man thinks in his heart, so is he…If you think that people that know alot are gods and that you are just a mere mortal doomed to ignorance, then you are. But if you think that you may nor know alot right now, but that you are smart enough to put in the effort, and that you are worth the effort, then you are.
Have a great week my dear!
