There was once a man so very much in a rush who thought he knew the way and so he hurried on. Of course he knew, he was the wisest man he knew and that was enough for him. There came the morning when he was late and wisdom said slow down. But he knew a shortcut, the path others said was not there, and he was very late. Therefore, as he was brilliant, the smartest man he knew, he took it. Now he is still the wisest man he knows. He is just not going anywhere soon.
"To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, 'If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.'" John 8:31-32
