Ezekiel 17:22-24; Psalms 92:2-3,13-16; 2 Corinthians 5:6-10; Mark 4:26-34
Back in the twenties, Thomas Edison wrote these lines:
“We don’t know the millionth part of one percent about anything. We don’t know what water is. We don’t know what light is. We don’t know what gravitation is. We don’t know what enables us to keep on our feet when we stand up. We don’t know what electricity is. We don’t know what heat is. We don’t know anything about magnetism. We have a lot of hypotheses about these things, but that is all. But we do not let our ignorance about all these things deprive us of their use.”
Of course, since the 1920s, we have learned a tremendous amount about the physical and biological sciences. But there is still much more that we don’t know. But we do not let our ignorance deprive us of their use.
God is an impenetrable mystery. But we do not let our ignorance deprive us of the experience of His Presence.
Thought is a mystery.…
