The words "I don't know"

I read a great essay this morning from this week's edition of Lenny. It's titled Why More Doctors Should Embrace the Words "I Don't Know."

It's written by a physician, and it's about physicians, but I like it because it applies to everyone in all professions.

I'd love for pastors to embrace "I don't know," too.

Here's the link. 

I've noticed lately that in all vocational realms there seems to be a serious resistance to saying "I don't know." From politicians to ministers to professors...many have a hard time with those words. And yet, those words are the actual truth. No one knows everything.

I'd be curious to hear your thoughts in the comments if you feel like sharing!
