It's Okay to admit "I don't know"

Some Christians, especially those who have been for a long time, think they know everything there is to know about being a Christian.  They seem to know all the answers to every question and all solutions to a problem.  That's great because it means they are learning well, but it doesn't mean that you can brag about it because sometimes there are things you don't know.  It is scary!  Why?

When we think we know everything, pride sets in.  We don't want to admit that sometimes we don't know the answers or what to do.  We don't want to humble ourselves and let others share what they can to help.  It pleases God if we pause, confess our inadequacy, and ask for His wisdom as we continue to learn more about Him and more about living the Christian faith.  If others ask and we don't know, it's okay to tell them we don't know.  Get rid of that pride that won't help you grow as a Christian.  It's okay not to know because it takes a life time to learn and to grow.

"Our God, will you not judge them? For we have no power to face this vast army that is attacking us. We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you.” - 2 Chronicles 20:12
