My lack of understanding is sometimes simply being willing only to read into or hear what's easy and pleasant to my ears.  I don't have to go away intellectually, emotionally, physically, or spiritually to figure it out. Luke 18:31-34 Unwilling to remain and play a full hand without my fingers crossed is like getting drunk on sobering news. What's lacking is overcome in knowing by faith of the One who lacks nothing. Psalm 34:8-11
