On Jefferson and Knowledge

Yesterday I was able to visit the home of Thomas Jefferson. It’s an impressive house on a beautiful hill. The contents highlight Jefferson genius and his continued search for knowledge.
Later in the evening as I was sitting around with the other parents on the trip my friend Sam pointed out that the YouVersion verse of the day was very appropriate considering the location we had just visited.

“This is what the Lord says, he who made the earth, the Lord who formed it and established it—the Lord is his name: ‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’ (Jeremiah 33:2, 3 NIV)

And of course , Sam, another man full of all sorts of knowledge, was correct.

Jefferson did some pretty incredible things and had some very neat gadgets in his home. But with all of his knowledge and skill he still was searching and still had tons of things he did not know. That’s a humbling thought. The Creator knows all of these things, which is even more humbling.

Let us remember the greatness of the God we serve and always be calling to him for more understanding.
