Sunday Devotional With Mr.E: WHEN WILL I LEARN?!

I've crafted most of my life.  I have a master's degree in an art related field.  I've been teaching visual arts for almost a quarter century. SO WHY IN THE WORLD DO I STILL BURN MYSELF EVERY TIME I USE A HOT GLUE GUN?!  You would think that by now I'd have figured out how to use a glue gun.  Do you have something that you use often, but do not use well? There are times that I think I'm in a hurry and become careless.  There are times that I'm just not really paying attention to what I'm doing.  I pay the price every time.  I've burned myself, ruined clothing, and truly messed up the project I was working on.  Is it that I truly don't know how to use a hot glue gun, or have I never learned from my mistakes?

  Are you acquainted with people that know a lot, but do not seem very wise? Knowledge & Wisdom are quite different. Knowledge is static. Facts are fabulous, but what are their purpose?  Wisdom is knowledge with perspective and applications.  There are many who know the Word of God, but they do little with that knowledge.  There lives do not look as if they have put into practice the words that they have read. The Bible is meant to transform the reader.  It is a love letter from God to his children. This "knowledge" is meant to lead one into a life lived for the Lord by the power of the Holy Spirit.  

 That being said, there are many of us who know God, don't always live like we do.  We have read the Word, but fail to put it into practice.  Maybe we are too busy.  Maybe we aren't really paying attention.  A distracted life does not display the wisdom of one who walks with God.  Whatever the reason, we need to start living a life that not only knows the word...but puts it into practice.
