“While God desires for us to have many of His attributes, omniscience is not one of them. He is the only one who knows everything… and all wisdom and knowledge come from Him.”
Not only did our author make me laugh – she’s exactly right!
Here’s something I really hate - unsolicited advice. Someone who presumes they know exactly what I need to do, hear, and be. They tend to not listen well and they rarely let you finish what you were saying before they jump in with some recommendation for you.
Know-it-alls make me want to run away. I avoid sitting near them. They tend to make me cynical – LOL.
On the other hand, maybe I am that way sometimes.
Just to be sure that I don’t turn into a Know-It-All, I am going to try to follow the advice in our little book:
- Do not correct anyone unless it is a matter of major importance.
- When corrected, refuse to become defensive or try to prove you are right.
- Talk less, a lot less.
- Ask more questions. Let other people talk. Actively listen to their ideas.
- Let someone else have the joy of explaining something to you.
