Are You Growing in Knowledge and Truth?

“We know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffs up, but love edifies.”

1 Corinthians 8:1b


Ponder This

Would you like to find out whether or not you’re growing in knowledge and truth? Let me ask you this question: Are you excited about truth? What new truths are you learning? Are you experiencing freedom in your life? Jesus said, “You shall know the truth, and the truth will make you free” (John 8:32). Are you still in bondage to political correctness, prejudice, lies, the party line, pressures, and fears? It is because you’ve not understood the truth. Are you learning humility? A man who is learning truth doesn’t tell you how much he knows; he tells you how little he knows and how much he has yet to learn. The more you learn, the more you realize that the ocean is so big, and your boat is so small. Knowledge puffs up, but love edifies.

Practice This

Make a list of the differences between only growing in knowledge and growing in knowledge of the truth.
