It’s true that leaders need to grow in their knowledge. But is it possible for knowledge to make leaders dumber?
People who don’t know anything are more likely to ask questions. This can lead to answers, and then they’ll know something.
The problem with knowing something is when people confuse it with knowing everything.
People who think they know everything don’t ask anymore. Why would they? They know everything, or at least they think they do.
While none of us would ever say that we “know everything” outright, our actions may say something different. When we don’t ask questions, when we aren’t willing to learn more, when we aren’t open to correction—that’s what we’re saying. “Why should I learn that? I know everything.” Or at the very least we’re saying, “I don’t need to learn that.” Famous last words.
We are saying “I know everything” when . . .
All of these are different ways that knowing something can make us dumber. Don’t make that mistake. The world is huge! Every person has a story to tell. God can do things we’ve never even seen. It’s better to know nothing but Him and enjoy the ride.
We know that we all possess knowledge. Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up.
