“Anyone who claims to know something does not yet have the necessary knowledge, but anyone who loves God is known by him”
1 Corinthians 8:2-3

Some have named our era as the “information age.” If you don’t know something it’s just because you haven’t had time to google it yet. And this ready access to knowledge leads to great pride when we know something and great condescension towards those who don’t share the knowledge we have obtained. But Paul makes an argument, in the context of eating food sacrificed to idols, that knowledge is incomplete without love. I want to think more about that this week. So often we say things like “they should know better.” But maybe we would be better served if we focused on ‘loving better.’ We should love better, I think that is Paul’s point.
