Back in primary school we used to have a maths tables competition. A ladder was formed and the competition was fierce. Challenges came left right and centre to shake the pecking order. The league leaders were regularly challenged and had to defend their positions. All aspired to finish top of the ladder and have no peer or equal.
It's funny how everything is relative, isn't it? Many years have since passed and the pursuit of knowledge is never ending. The more we know, the more we realise we are yet to learn. Knowledge is ever increasing in all its fields. Energy sources, information technology, medical research, astrophysics, agricultural techniques are just a few examples where our knowledge is expanding in great leaps and bounds. Imagine if someone could attain complete perfect knowledge, that person would be incredible, absolutely amazing. The world would stand in awe and admiration!
One such person does exist.
He knows it all, everything about everything, past, present and future.
He deserves our awe and admiration.
He is incredible and absolutely amazing.
His name, God.
“To whom will you compare me? Or who is my equal?” says the Holy One. Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one and calls forth each of them by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing."Job 21:22:
“Can anyone teach knowledge to God, since he judges even the highest?
In the presence of a master, when there is no way you can compete, the most appropriate action is to take off your hat and bow in the presence of greatness.
Gotta love the Lord our God!
