Knowledge puffeth up, but charity (love) edifieth – 1 Corinthians 8:1b
Freedom is a wonderful gift that is never free. It must be cherished, nurtured, and protected. Those who treat freedom with reckless regard often find themselves quickly enslaved by the most unlikely master.
Knowledge, though admired by many, has this type of power. Pride often follows closely behind the pursuit of knowledge. The result is so often hatred and separation in the lives of those who should rather demonstrate love.
The challenge for each of us is to continue to learn and use this knowledge to help others as well. Apply yourself to your studies. As coach always says at the beginning of each season, “You are student-athletes. Never forget which word comes first.” As we learn, let’s work at making each other better.
Remember, all knowledge begins with God. In all of our learning, let’s elevate love and the practical application of all we learn towards our teammates.
