Swell or Grow?

“Knowledge makes arrogant, but love edifies.” (1 Corinthians 8:1b)

The man who thinks he knows the most probably has a thing or two to learn.  It’s easy to “know” what everyone else should do.  It’s hard to get into the trenches and help them where they are.  It’s easy to pass judgment on another’s mistakes, but love sees the journey from their perspective.

Knowledge tries to win the argument, but love tries to win the soul.

Paul knew the answers to all the doctrinal questions, but he also loved people enough to walk with them through their journey to grow and learn.  Love mentors and serves and waits for the growth to come from an honest heart.  Knowledge without love swells the pride.  Knowledge with love builds a bridge to truth.

Matthew 4:4 #Biblebites
