First you get information, but it won't benefit you until you understand it. Once you understand it then you can apply it.
"Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding." Prov. 4: 7
Wisdom is the principal thing, it is supreme - Wisdom is the ultimate goal in life but understanding is important.
Understanding destroys frustration!
Its possible to hear information but not understand! That is why Jesus sent us the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit teaches the knowledge of God. He helps us to understand that knowledge. He empowers us to apply what we have understood.
Our responsibility as disciples is to be interested and to make time...A lack of interest causes us to remain ignorant.
When we are interested, we will be revealed all the secrets.
Jesus told His disciples:
"To you it has been granted to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been granted."
Disciples means students. Students makes time and investments. We are all called to be disciples and make disciples of all nations. Disciples are committed. A disciples' interest level are different, they are higher.
Your interest determines (the subject &) the level of information you will receive! God cannot tell us things that we don't want to know.
Jesus also said:
"When anyone hears the word of the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what has been sown in his heart. This is the one on whom seed was sown beside the road."
We need to understand the WORD in order to apply and live successfully!
