Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten son into the world, that we might live through Him. In this is love, not the we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.

IJohn 4:7-11

I think that’s a pretty incredible statement, “He who does not love, does not know God.” Hmmm… We can have knowledge about many things. We can be knowledgeable about the Bible, prophecy, End Time events, doctrinal issues, politics, the “latest silver bullet”, children, homeschooling, health remedies, gardening tips, home decorating and the like…

However, the Word reminds me that it is nothing without love.

“Thou shalt have no other gods before Me.” Exodus 20:3
