The Value of Learning November 25, 2015

It pays to go to school. Statistics Canada found that more than 80% of College and University graduates had acquired full time employment within two years of graduating. In our high tech world, education is necessary for financial success. To gain knowledge through education is very laudable. But the Bible tells about an even greater goal in life? It is that of obtaining wisdom. Paul wrote to young Timothy, “But as for you,… continue in what you have learned.. how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures which are able to make you wise to … through faith in Christ.” The prudent make their goal to not only have knowledge of this world, but that true wisdom which comes from God. And the place to begin in our quest for that wisdom is to become rightly related to God by placing our faith in His Son, Jesus, because “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.”
