I am both confident and convenced that some use ignorance as a safety blanket.
(Got to the punch fast, huh?) I was supposed to share this on Saturday, when it was first given to me, but that didn’t happen. It was actually confirmed before my eyes by the end of Sunday night. People have but to ASK God for wisdom to receive it. We know by reading James 1:5. Very plainly stated… ask for wisdom. So why are some still not wise? I believe it was Maya Angelou, or Marguerite Ann Johnson, who said “when you know better you do better.” I think the crowd in question chooses to hide behind the speculation of whether or not they know. Instead of getting closer to the safety zone…they play hop scotch on the “danger zone line”. Then when asked about their acts of foolishness, or comments, they claim ignorance. This is NOT court, this is life. If you take F out of life you get LIE. If you take Faith, Feeling, and Future out of LIFE you get LIES… what people tell to feel good about themselves…
Yes, I know this is heavy and late. It had to come out of me before I entered Monday. Ask for wisdom. Act wisely. Walk with the wise. Be better for it.
One reply on “ignorance isn’t a plea…”
This is an on-time, sho-nuff word! Realize that ignorance is a TEMPORAL state, a placeholder to be filled with adequate understanding. When Adam and Eve became cognizant of their nakedness (ignorance), they immediately covered themselves. Ignorance is the mind’s symptom that it is deficient in knowledge. It SHOULD prompt you to seek out understanding. We should not bask in the sickness of our gaps. We do what we know until we learn better. Once we learn, not acting appropriately is called defiance, and there is no excusing a hard head!
