1 Corinthians 13:12 says, “For now we see through a glass, darkly“.
Immature Christians think they know everything that’s important to know about God. They have it all figured out and really aren’t interested in learning more. However, as Oswald Chambers points out in his book My Utmost for His Highest, the more you know about God, the more you understand you don’t know about Him.
That is perhaps the best measure of our Christian maturity. Either we’re spiritually arrogant and refuse to learn, or we’re spiritually thirsty and can’t get enough. Everyone fits somewhere in between. In our text for the day, Paul observed that now, today, on October 2, we see spiritual truth darkly, dimly, as if through a veil. We can only glimpse bits and pieces of God’s plan.
But in the future, we’ll understand it all, by and by. Don’t be arrogant. God has a lot to teach us.
