We live in the age of information. We have more information available to us than we know what to do with.
That is not a good thing.
Good spiritual hygiene is more about who you know than what you know. The Shepherd’s goal is our transformation. Too much “what” can result in arrogance and a sense of self-sufficiency – the opposite of what Jesus is going for.
As under-shepherds, our goal must be the same as his. We may impart certain information, but we must imprint Christ’s character. What is imparted can easily be forgotten; what is imprinted is a building block in who they are becoming .
And that is a very good thing.
