Now here’s a fascinating video that a reader sent me a link to illustrating that just because you know something doesn’t mean you understand it. There’s a difference between knowledge and understanding.
You’ve heard the saying, “One never forgets how to ride a bike.” Well, that might apply to riding a bike in a particular way. But what if the steering of the bike is changed? Will you still understand how to ride it then? Or will you quickly discover that what you thought was understanding gained in the past was really knowledge that is keeping you stuck in an old pattern that doesn’t work under new conditions.
The difference between knowledge and understanding is an important distinction to make when it comes to making progress in demonstrating Christian Science healing. We may have a large knowledge of God, but do we understand God? Are we able to quickly adapt to changing circumstances because we have the understanding necessary to do so. Or are we getting bogged down and stuck because we’re relying upon knowledge that was useful yesterday, but not meeting the need today?
I encourage you to watch the video and see what you learn. It will get you to thinking.
