Ignorance can be expensive. Â Ask the guy who just paid someone $95 to tell him that there was a switch in his house that accidenitly got flipped, and turned off the heat. Â I thought the furnance was broke. Â It wasn’t powering on. Â The switch next the heater was on, the breaker was fine, but now I know there is an emergency switch upstairs that turns theÂ furnaceÂ off as well. Â Now I know…but it cost me.
$95 is a lot to have someone teach you about the emergency switch to the heater. Â But $95 is nothing compared to what others pay for their ignorance. Â Parents, ignorant of how to parent, end up with unruly kids. Â Spouses, ignorant of how relationships work, end up with troubled marriages. Â Students, ignorant of how to study, end up with poor grades. Â People, ignorant of God’s love, end up in anÂ eternityÂ of pain. Â You get the idea.
Ignorance is expensive. Â It cost me $95, but it cost others a whole lot more. Â Maybe there are some areas we should work on gaining some wisdom in?
