God takes no delight in ignorance


Though we are slow of learning and quick to race ahead in ignorance; yet God is a patient teacher and tolerates our impetuous nature.

Brethren, the joy you feel when you have comprehended a new truth for the first time does not come from within you; it is the delight God feels when He successfully teaches you a new truth that He is sharing with you.

Let us than bring great joy and an abounding delight to the heart of God by being quick to learn the lessons He enjoys teaching us, that we may have His joy fulfilled in us.

God takes no delight in ignorance; for ignorance tries His patience.

But they who are of an understanding heart who seek to learn of God are a delight to His Eyes.
