Tell me what YOU know

I came across an amusing quote the other day from the famed American writer Ralph Waldo Emerson. He said “I hate quotations. Tell me what you know.” The reason I found it amusing is because Emerson himself is one of the most quoted writers I know of, and rightly so, as he made some astute and pithy observations on life. This particular remark I found to be extremely perceptive and should be well noted by Christian leaders today, especially those who consider themselves intellectual or academic.
