A current thought I am stirring around: Don’t strive to be an expert in something. Instead, strive to be a master OF something.
The question I bat around is this: If I am an expert in something, is it just knowledge? (Such as an expert in Church History.) If I am a “master” of something, it’s beyond knowledge. I think it means a discipline of some sort… a skill.
But those are basic thoughts I am running with currently.
Expert or master… I don’t think we give enough to either thought. We are too scattered in our thinking and try to be a “jack of all trades.” We’re not very “deep” on particular disciplines.
