This is defined as a “lack of experience, wisdom, or judgment.”

Often, we think of this in negative terms. Someone who is naïve is a person who lacks something. They don’t have the knowledge that others possess. 

The truth is some things in life are not worth knowing. When Eve was tempted in the garden, the serpent said, “You will become like God, knowing good and evil.” Unfortunately, the only knowledge humanity gained was the experience of evil. 

There are some things in life you do not want to know. 

The pain of loss, the heartbreak of lost love, the shame of sin, and the guilt of a wrong decision are just a few things God is trying to keep us from experiencing.

People may look at Christians and call them naïve. I am quite fine with that. There is a blessing in not knowing some things.
