Treat things with reverence

“What you do not understand, treat with reverence and be patient, and what you do understand, cherish and keep.” – Augustine

With so many trends and voices in the surrounding culture, and still more trends and voices in the church, this ancient statement gives me the perspective I need.
It’s okay not to understand everything – but be sure to treat such areas with reverence and patience. And what I do understand (or think I understand) I will cherish.
Thank you, Augustine, for your help.
Thank you, God.
