Different cultures have different values. In some cultures people like to eat dog; yet in other cultures they like to beef. Beef eaters don't like dog eaters. They wonder, "How can you eat a dog? They are our pets!" But other cultures wonder, "How can you eat beef?"

You have different colors of skin, speak different languages, come from different cultural backgrounds, and so you eat different foods! You can complicate the whole thing because there are monkey eaters, and pig eaters, and vegetarians. And in some cultures they even have man eaters--humans who eat humans!

So, there is major confusion. We have minds that are confused, limited, and error-prone. We lie to ourselves. We feel omniscient. We think we know everything, even though we know a minuscule amount of what really is.

We can't know all there is to know because of human limitations. But we also find it difficult to know all we need to know, all that is right to know. Where can we find the answers to these intellectual queries?

Actually, it takes God to know all there is to know. But it also takes God, for us to know all we need to know and all that is right to know.

Why? He knows our needs better than we know our needs.
