Do Not Become A Know-It-All

To read the Bible in a year, read Job 40–42.
Know-it-alls not only think they know everything, but they generally believe they know more than anyone else and they believe that they cannot be wrong. Job found himself in just such a situation unintentionally. Therefore, the Lord appeared to Job and the appearance alone humbled him. Then the Lord asked a series of questions, that Job knew only God could answer, because He is the Creator and truly knows everything and can do anything, whereas Job knew little and could do little. Then God stopped for a moment, and challenged Job further (Job 40:1),
“Shall the one who contends with the Almighty correct Him?
He who rebukes God, let him answer it.”
(Job 40:2)
Job answered back (Job 40:3), realizing he had been arrogant and spoken when he should have kept his hand over his mouth,
“Behold, I am vile;
What shall I answer You?
I lay my hand over my mouth.
Once I have spoken, but I will not answer;
Yes, twice, but I will proceed no further.”
(Job 40:4, 5)
Learn from Job not to become proud and act as though no one can teach you, not even God, because He will do something to teach you that you do not know everything.
