"And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know. 

But if any man love God, the same is known of him."

- 1 Corinthians 8:2-3 kjv

 You Think You Know it All 


January 5, 2023


Reverend Danny Rhoades

My beloved brothers and sisters, today I'm here to talk to you about something that has been weighing heavily on my heart. We live in a world where it seems like everyone thinks they know it all, but do they really?

I remember a story from my childhood, when I was young and foolish and thought I knew it all. I was walking home from school one day and decided to take a shortcut through the woods. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but I ended up getting lost. After wandering around for what felt like forever, I finally made it back home. I learned a valuable lesson that day: just because you think you know it all doesn't mean that you actually do.


It's easy to get caught up in the notion that we know everything there is to know. We make assumptions about how the world works and never take the time to challenge them. We have access to more information than ever before, but that doesn't mean that we're any wiser. We must be willing to constantly learn and grow, to challenge our preconceived notions and be open to new ideas.

The Bible is full of stories about people who thought they knew it all, only to be proven wrong. The story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden is a great example. God told them not to eat from the Tree of Knowledge, but they thought they knew better and ate from it anyway. This story teaches us that even when we think we know it all, it's important to be humble and listen to those around us.

We also see this in the life of King Solomon. He asked God for wisdom, and God granted his request. But as Solomon began to gain more knowledge and understanding, he began to think he was smarter than God. He took multiple foreign wives and disobeyed God's laws, leading to his downfall. This teaches us that even when we have knowledge, it's important to use it responsibly.

My brothers an sisters, we must never forget that no matter how much we think we know, there is always more to learn. As Ecclesiastes 1:18 says, "For with much wisdom comes much sorrow; the more knowledge, the more grief." The only way to truly understand the world is by being humble and open-minded, ready to learn something new every day.

As we leave home today, remember this: never let your knowledge become a barrier to your growth - because when you think you know it all, "you don't really know anything at all!"



Lord, fill me afresh with Your Spirit today and overflow me with Your healing stream so then when I am with anyone else they will sense Your presence. Make me to be like a well of refreshing water flowing out to others. I know You see me through Your Son, Jesus. I pray others will see Jesus in me, even if they don't fully understand what it is they are seeing.  I pray all of this in the name of our Lord and Savor Jesus Christ, Amen
