Sometimes I think of myself as someone who is well described by the phrase "jack of all trades, master of none". Except that I'm not really that handy, I just feel that I'm certainly not exceptionally good at anything.
Tonight I will officially receive the post-graduate degree of a Masters in Theology. So does this finally mean that I can say that I've mastered something? I doubt it. As with many educational pursuits, the more you get to know, the more you realise you don't know. I have by no means mastered the field of theology but I am a little further along the path than when I started.
On the positive side, I'm not concerned about this anymore. I'm happy to live with not knowing everything about God, the Bible or who Jesus was. I know enough to get through my day and I'm learning more all the time. Who knows what tomorrow will bring?
