Many of these blogs will be sparked from meditations and thoughts I had and one that really stuck with me yesterday was about knowledge and I mean knowledge in a general sense, but that it’s rooted in Christ.
To explain with a story, I used to do a bit of break-dancing when I was in high school, but I have lost the drive to do it for many years, but it’s come back recently. When I started to do it again yesterday I asked myself, how does dance link up with music? I asked this question because I play a few instrument and know quite a bit about music theory. So with this question in mind, I started to dance to songs I danced to in high school and I found myself using my body as I would play an instrument. I would put my part in the song and improv on whole notes, half notes, thirds, 16ths, etc. I was so excited to see how cool and fluid my dancing was and I learned something I never figured out in high school. I understood that the knowlege I had in other fields was key to becoming knowledgable in dance.
This is an important point to realize, firstly, that knowledge is proportionate to how much you can do (and do well) and secondly, how knowledge is rooted in Christ. I know the knowledge rooted in Christ seems random, but I have strong point about this which in fact led me to the possibility to realize what I did about dance and music.
What Christ taught me through many prayers and meditations was how to question the knowledge I had and was gaining. I learned to ask questions about all things and to wonder how to perfect myself in all aspects of life. I always wanted to be perfect and great in my life and I found that in Christ by asking questions. When you have solid foundation in Christ and trust him and the dogmas of the church which are ruled by him because you understand why they are the way they are in the first place, you start applying the same techniques to every day life. If you are wanting to become a saint, but a secular, you always must strive for knowledge, not just in Christ, but all things IN Christ.
Anyway guys, I hope this article helped inspire you to always seek knowledge. First seek it in Christ and then seek it for all other things!
