2 Timothy 2:15 KJV Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
Parents want the best for their children and so they spend whatever is in their capacity to give their children a qualitative education.
The child has a role to play too. To study hard in order to be the best. From the Elementary to the Secondary and then Tertiary even to the Professional School.
These phases of education requires dedication. It requires money, time and intellect. To get the best out of it, you have to shun pleasure and some other things. Your focus has to be on your studies.
It is sad that we spend so much time to get certified for the ephemeral but care less about the spiritual. Forgetting that after the earth which is temporal, we face the eternal.
I ain’t saying you should quit school but balance it. As you study in school, study your Bible too.
When you go to school. You study to become a Doctor, Lawyer, etc which you weren’t. In the School of the Spirit, you study to become Christ. You study to align yourself to the personality of Christ. You study to be certified as worker that doesn’t have to be ashamed, a worker that shares the undiluted Word of God.
Anyone who doesn’t have the sound Word can’t be bold enough to share and will be tossed about by several doctrines that aren’t of Christ.
As you acquire certificates in academic, acquire certificates in the School of the Spirit too.
Let us pray: Father, let me daily live on your Word.
