When I was 16, I wanted to know everything.  I desired a system that was logical and foolproof.  I sought for advisors, writers, godly instructors.

Now that I’m 66, I want to know God.  I desire to understand his workings.  I seek for those who walk the trail with me in hearing from God.

The nuance is slight. 

To know everything is to know the creator.  To understand how life works is to delve into an understanding of the mind of the creator.  To seek wisdom is to seek the one who wisely formed me, this world and all that is in the world.

Jeremiah 9:24 – if I place a priority on one thing of all the things that I have experienced, it is this alone. That I have come to know God.
