Seeking Him Podcast

Knowledge Without Love

“I think it’s great that my wife’s been taking all those Bible classes, but it’s kind of intimidating.”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: The apostle Paul says, “If I . . . understand all mysteries and all knowledge . . . but have not love, I am nothing” (1 Cor. 13:2). As women today, we have opportunities like never before to study the Word of God. But our knowledge has to be balanced with love.

“She tells me that she wants me to lead spiritually, but when we read the Bible, she argues with everything I say.”

Nancy: Knowledge without love puffs up. It makes us arrogant and hard to live with. If our knowledge doesn’t make us more humble and submissive to the authorities God’s put in our lives, then it’s worth nothing.

We need to keep growing in our knowledge of God’s Word, but let’s also ask Him to develop in us truly humble, loving hearts.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
