Being Content Not to Know

Have you ever felt the urge to open a door marked “Private”? Some things are not for us to know.

“The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our sons forever, that we may observe all the words of this law” (Deuteronomy 29:29).

What we know/what we don’t know

God has revealed some things about the end times. Christ will come, but we don’t know when (Matthew 24:36). Yet that doesn’t seem to stop date-setters.

Regarding our immediate future, “. . . you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow” (James 4:14). Crystal-ball gazing, palm-reading, and horoscopes are out of bounds for the Christian.

From knowing to doing

That which God has revealed was not given to satisfy our curiosity. He revealed it so we could do it.

In doing it we are blessed (James 1:25).
