Sorry, but many of you previous posters have completely missed the point of the OP!
Being clueless (as the term is used in many parts of the US) isn’t the same thing as being unintelligent! I have a high IQ, but I often have no clue about the “drama” going on around me at work. By not engaging in the lunch room gossip, I have been happily on the outside of some major skirmishes, able to act in love towards all because I wasn’t aware that doing so would be considered “taking sides” in these dramas.
I am considered “clueless” when it comes to people wanting me to take sides – and I thank God for that! My cluelessness allows me to love without judgment or reservation.
I remember one time when I was a teenager being propositioned by a man (at least ten years my senior) – but my innocence left me completely clueless as to what he was suggesting, so I just shrugged my shoulders and walked away. My friends had to explain to me what had actually happened in that moment – I was physically completely safe the whole time, but might have been tempted by curiosity or flattery if I had known I was being propositioned.
I am clued in about relationships, other people’s feelings, the latest educational research, Church teachings, and many, many other areas in the arts and sciences. And I love taking college courses to increase my knowledge and understanding.
But sometimes being clueless is a blessing! We ought not to give into our curiosity about sin and all the different ways sin can be committed. And we ought not try to be “clued in” to everything other people think or say about us, or what they are thinking and saying about other people we know (or don’t know, for that matter).
Perhaps it’s all in the meaning we give to the word “clueless.” But 'round here, there are many, many times when being clueless is a blessing!
