Knowledge, when not applied, may become stale or unsuitable after a while. People say "No knowledge is a waste"; but I'd like to add that "knowledge without timely application may become a weight". Many people are thinking about what they know, instead of doing what they know. The reason why you'd often find intelligent but frustrated people around you is probably because what they know is not giving them their desired breakthrough. Many young people study in order to get a job in an environment where there is literally no job. Wouldn't it be better if they studied in order to start a business instead?
I once told a friend during a church service that I was tired of listening to powerful exhortations from our pastor, and that I wanted to start getting powerful results. I can assure you, that's not something anybody would want to say in the middle of an inciting exhortation. But to my amazement, our pastor said the same thing few seconds later. He said "what you've learnt is enough, when are you going to start getting the results?". Learning is good, but it's better when you learn things that are presently applicable to life. What's the use of learning for the future when the challenges of the present may eventually eat up the future.
That's how far we'd go on today's Timely Note. But take these last words; LIFE BECOMES FRUSTRATING WHEN KNOWLEDGE BECOMES STALE. KNOWLEDGE IS STALE WHEN WHAT YOU KNOW ISN'T GETTING YOU WHAT YOU DESIRE. Have a most fruitful weekend, in Jesus precious name!
And hey, don't forget to "like" it. And if you really like it, please share it!
