Ecclesiastes 10: 15, ‘The labour of the foolish wearieth every one of them, because he knoweth not how to go to the city’.
If you have ever listened to any interview of successful people, you would notice one thing. They would always say that if they had known what they know now, they would have done things differently. You can also personally relate to this. Have you ever been on a journey and missed the road. When you eventually get the road right, you realize how much time has been wasted. The whole thing frustrates both you and the people with you.
Knowledge and information can make all the difference in a person’s life. What you know determines how fast you reach your destination. If you take a look at people who are erstwhile succeeding more than you are, they know something that you do not know. The saying that ‘knowledge is power’ is not just for fun. It must have rang true for the person who first said it.
What do you know that God has said about you? What do you know about you profession that your colleagues do not know? They are a lot of people in the market for God’s attention, what do you know about Him that will make Him pay attention to you first?
Because someone knows something you do not, you ow refer to the person as being lucky. What is luck? Labouring Under Correct Knowledge. What you know determines where you get to and where you get to is dependent on what you know. If you know nothing, you are going nowhere. If you know something, you may get to some places. If you know a lot of things, you’ll get to a lot of places.
This applies to both your spiritual and physical endeavours. You can only grow based on what you know.
