~Seeking Knowledge~

It seems as though people living in these times just don't have any sense of value of how precious life really is! It seems like when mistakes are made and people are hurt..the person doing the hurting will not take responsibility for their actions or even realize that they have even hurt someone in the first place! But then again, the person that is hurting others may also be hurting and the person who was hurt by them may need to stop and realize that "the first cut is the deepest" other words they need to realize that they need help and they need a friend they can count on to give them a chance to change for the better! Sometimes we need to focus not so much on the fact that we were hurt..but instead ask the question "why did they hurt me in that way?" The reason may be a deeper issue that they are working on, when we come to realize's at that very moment that we begin to change the world around us and the people in that world!
 If only we could see the bigger picture of this life..maybe then we could begin to understand and have the knowledge we need to stop asking "why me?" And start saying "why not me?" We can be the ones that seek a better understanding of things and have the knowledge to keep our mouths shut and see how things play out instead of trying to sort other people's problems out and in the process end up hurting them..perhaps we need to just sit back and try to see the whole picture before we critique..there is always something deeper there than we can first see if we'll just stop for a moment before we speak up then maybe we can be the person that ends up ending conflicts, misunderstandings, issues, problems..maybe we can be the ones that can solve these things..instead of being like a tornado and destroying everything in people's path..wouldn't you like to instead be a peace speaker? The peace speaker calms the storm and makes the sun come out in people's lives! 
Lets be peace speakers and seek the knowledge that we need from The Lord! And if you mess up..give it to Jesus, after all..the ship floats much more smoothly when you have captain Jesus aboard!
We might not know everything but we do however serve a God who does in fact know everything and we can rest in knowing that he's there to give us the guidance that we need!
Proverbs 1:1-7
"2 To know wisdom and instruction,to understand words of insight, 3 to receive instruction in wise dealing,in righteousness, justice, and equity; 4 to give prudence to the simple,knowledge and discretion to the youth— 5 Let the wise hear and increase in learning,and the one who understands obtain guidance, 6 to understand a proverb and a saying,the words of the wise and their riddles. 7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge;fools despise wisdom and instruction."
