11/8/12 Daily Devotion

Proverbs 19:2 Desire without knowledge is not good—how much more will hasty feet miss the way!

Our passion for serving God must include a passion for Biblical knowledge. How can we answer questions without a tinge of knowledge? How can we guide another, if we have no inkling of understanding in the manner of guidance? How can we share the love of Christ when we do not have a widespread understanding of it ourselves? To change the life of another, we will need Biblical knowledge, and there is no way around this fact. It is through the gaining of knowing that we find a great deal of our passion for service. It is within this knowledge that we come to understand the capability of ourselves within the power of God. Passion without knowledge will only carry us so far, but passion combined with knowledge will help us set this world on fire for God.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me understand how important it is to study Your Word.
