Spurgeon: He who thinks he knows everything will miss the joy of finding out new truth


Now I know that the LORD saves his anointed;
he will answer him from his holy heaven
with the saving might of his right hand.
Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.
They collapse and fall,
but we rise and stand upright. —Psalm 20:6-8 ESV

Ever had that “Ah-Ha” moment when reading your Bible and discovering something new about God? I hope so.  Here is C. H Spurgeon, in the Treasury of David:

We live and learn, and what we learn we are not ashamed to acknowledge. He who thinks he knows everything will miss the joy of finding out new truth; he will never be able to cry, “now know I,” for he is so wise in his own conceit that he knows all that can be revealed and more. Souls conscious of ignorance shall be taught of the Lord, and rejoice as they learn. Earnest prayer frequently leads to assured confidence.
