We live in a generation where the world’s bank of knowledge is literally at our fingertips. The computer has morphed from an entity that took an entire city block of air conditioning to make it run to a foot square implement that sits on our lap! What used to take an entire day at the Library to research, pouring over micro fiche and thumbing through magazines, is now accomplished by simply typing in what you are looking for in the “search” line! With all of this at our disposal, much of our society is still woefully ignorant of the knowledge that we need, much like the people alluded to in Hosea 4:6 (KJV) My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. As this scripture indicates, it is imperative that we both understand, and adhere to, the Word of God. And, we have had access to this in our own homes all our lives – – long before the advent of computers, the Internet, and the Cloud!
Thanks to the work of Johannes Gutenberg in1440, the Word of God has been available for ALL to read. The problem is, far too many people are not availing themselves of this opportunity and, as a result, run the risk of facing the same fate God shared with Hosea to tell His people!
This is a most sober warning: …because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. It is obvious that not only do we need to adhere to the Word of God for our benefit, but for our future generations as well!
