The Intent of This Blog

This blog is intended to be a tool for the growth of whoever wants to use it. It is a daily journal intended to help us be more introspective. Every day I will do my best to supply a motivational quote, a Bible verse, a vocabulary word, and a personal message from myself. Use these if you like as motivation to improve yourself. Then, simply answer the daily questions provided honestly and see if it has an impact on your life. Zig Ziglar said, "If you don't have daily objectives, you qualify as a dreamer." Lets not be just dreamers but doers. Remember Martin Luther King Jr not only had a dream, he also had an objective. Thanks for reading, Jake

No Know


You have to have some kind of objectivity in life if you want to be taken seriously.” Bill O'Reilly

A fool hath no delight in understanding, but
that his heart may discover itself. 
Proverbs 18:2

Objective: “(of a person or their judgment) not influenced by personal feelings or opinions in considering and representing facts” New Oxford American Dictionary

We're all wrong a lot of the time, I'm wrong most the time, and if you think you're right the majority of the time, you're probably a lot like me, wrong. As mere mortals we need to understand that our knowledge is just like us; flawed, imperfect, partial, self-serving, slanted, and I could go on. What's more important than knowledge is wisdom and trust. Wisdom means understanding the value of objectivity and application of flawed knowledge to the best of our ability. Trust is gained by communicating the idea that our decisions are not made solely on the basis of knowledge, but through the application of wisdom, honesty and objectivity. We will never have perfect knowledge in this world. Everyday we learn more about ourselves and our environment, but with every addition of knowledge comes even more questions. Personally, I can't wait to meet our Creator and pick the brain of the only being containing all knowledge. Let's do our best to understand what knowledge really is and that we don't have it all; and that wisdom is gained through understanding, not knowing.
