Do you truly know the mysteries,
the things soley seen by the Lord?
Knowledge much greater than histories;
a wisdom much richer than gold.
Search them out while you still breathe;
seek them 'til your dying days.
A life refined they will seed;
sew them under morning rays.
If you're still dull with their knowledge,
something is lacking in your knowing.
It's not attained in some lofty college;
you may burn but you're not glowing.
One can cite the glories of heaven
and still not know the godly fare.
They're not gained until they're given
from the Master, only through prayer.
You cannot know until you're known,
not until you have besought.
You're stupid 'til your pride is thrown;
foolishness you've wrought.
To have all knowledge without wisdom,
to say the least, is truly one thing.
But until you've sought the coming kingdom
your knowledge is really nothing.

"If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him." ~ James 1:5
