Zeal Without Knowledge

Also, that the soul be without knowledge, it is not good; and he that hasteth with his feet sinneth. Proverbs 19:2
Zeal can be a good thing, its great to have passion for things. Many will say that they have Zeal for God or they are On fire for The Lord, however the Bible also warns Zeal is no good without knowledge. We can have passion about a cause we are supporting however this doesn’t mean were doing the right thing. Having Zeal with no knowledge is like computer with no processor, its running but it doesn’t comprehend what is running

Todays society I think we see this a lot, many people have great Zeal about certain issues and topics. However often when you analyze the issue they are debating, often their movements contradict themselves. There are many things wrong with the world today, however two wrongs don’t make a right. Often people with Zeal without knowledge end up causing more harm than good with their reactions

The Apostle Paul is a great example of this, nobody could doubt he had Zeal for God. Paul would do anything to serve and defend God. However his knowledge was lacking, he believed that all Christians were heretics and needed to be exterminated. Paul had Zeal for God but he was misled by his emotions and not his knowledge

But we all know the story , Jesus revealed himself to Paul on the road of Damascus and then Pauls Zeal turned to serving The Lord. What happened? Paul had more knowledge. Its important for all of us to seek wisdom, seek knowledge, seek truth. Your Zeal can be very misled if its not informed

Its important we dedicate time to our studies, we need to read the Bible daily, read as many books as possible, listen to qualified teachers, pray a lot, allow the Holy Spirit to lead and teach you, follow our Teacher and Master Jesus! Amen!
