What We Don’t Know We Don’t Know….

Some of us were having a discussion yesterday trying to tackle the age old questions:  Why does God allow suffering? Why doesn’t He stop it? etc.  You know the questions…we struggle with them throughout our lives….

Someone offered this wisdom:

Think of a pie chart:

The smallest segment (yellow) represents what we know – our knowledge

The next smallest segment (blue) is what we know that we don’t know.  For example, I know that I don’t know how to fix a car, or how to build a house.

The largest segment (red) is what we don’t know that we don’t know.  In other words, most of what is ‘out there’, I don’t even know is out there.  Hmmmmm….

And that is, of course, God’s knowledge.  So, trying to understand the mind of God is far beyond what we can ever begin to comprehend.  Hence, the question, “Do you trust Me?”

For further clarification….I refer you to the Book of Job!
