Here’s a little piece of inspiration that I wrote a few years ago. I hope you enjoy it. ~ God Bless!
There was a time when knowledge seemed to come to the forefront and people increased in learning. The Old Testament events had come to an end and there was silence for about four hundred years. Socrates, Plato and Aristotle, all contemporaries of one another, broke fresh ground with universities of learning and new ideas that added space to the landscape of the mind.
The concept of study or –ology was born. The beginning of such things like Philosophy and Biology took root. Science gained its elementary structure, while knowledge opened up minds to think and arrive at reason, flooding passion into the intellect.
Even the heart of Socrates would ask, “Where did this passion come from and why does it exist? God’s answer has always been in existence . . .
“The fear of the Lord is the
beginning of knowledge . . .” Proverbs 1:7
The hand of God led a society to awaken to knowledge. It had the appearance as a sort of voice crying out in the wilderness. A voice to prepare the mind, like John the Baptist prepared the heart.
The contemporaries of reason stretched the minds of the people open to learn how to think. The contemporaries of Christ went beyond reason and presented truth.
Truth inside a mind that knows how to think is even greater than Socrates, Plato or Aristotle. For reason can only go so far as to possibly conquer the world. It is apart from all reason, that Christ conquered the grave.
