My Life Verse

God causes all things to work together for good, for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose...

Throughout my life, in all its ups and downs, this has been the one constant truth I can confess.

Before I went to college I thought I was pretty smart, then I was required to read ingest dozens of books that proved how little I really knew. Then I graduated and thought I was pretty sharp and knew a lot, but then I went to grad school only to once again have to read many dozens of books to learn I was only slightly more learned than a tree stump, but boy howdy how I could postulate and orate my shallow wisdom; and then on to doctoral studies where I actually realized, sitting in a lonely computer lab late one evening, I had read a lot and knew a lot, but in reality I didn't know much at all. And in the following years of work and continued to ingest many many books and articles only to know what you have stated here-- book smarts does not equate to a thorough understanding...and so it goes with the study of the Word.

Sage advice Arch - gives me much to chew on. These days books are more constant companions than ever for me and I have developed a deeper craving for deeper, older books, instead of the twaddle I have spent much of my lie reading. Again thanks for your thoughts, and I love you man.
