‘Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom,
and to turn away from evil is understanding.’
In our most honest moments we must confess that we don't even know what we don't know. We're content with expecting life to continue on as we've perceived it in the past, because there's no vision for a different future. It's because our world lacks this testimony that we perish. TEOTE! is a cause for re-establishing that testimony in the land and to the farthest coastlands - for the joy of all peoples!
But how can we gain understanding the way Job 28:28 describes? How can we identify evil and turn from it? The first step to THIS kind of understanding is to admit that you don't know what you don't know!
So our pledge this year is to begin hearing the TESTIMONY of God's glory and our involvement throughout history, today and in the future. By doing this we'll have the opportunity to know how to turn away from evil and fear the LORD!
Have you acknowledged that you don't know what you don't know? Do you know where you can go to hear the testimony? Are you prepared to turn from the evil that the light of His Testimony will reveal - even if it means letting go of everything you once held dear? TEOTE! is challenging you to pledge to take that step.
My wife and I took the challenge this winter through a course called "Perspectives on the World Christian Movement". There are many great resources out there like this one. Seek them out and engage one today!!!
