EDUCATION EXPENSIVE?

“Children in whom was no blemish, well favored, and skillful in all wisdom, and cunning in knowledge, and understanding science…”
- Daniel 1:4

It was Derek Bok who said, “If education is expensive, try ignorance.” Education and ignorance are a world apart, the difference between them being like that between light and darkness. Without education, which has brought advancement in learning, the world would have remained primitive. Education helps in carrying out researches, some of which have led to inventions that improve human life. The world is now a global village because of education. Sacrifice money, time and energy to acquire education. Education is good because it provides knowledge, good jobs, and good socio-economic status. However, a child should be given an all-round education and not just in the mind. The world is in confusion today because God and morals are not allowed in classrooms. “When you educate a man in mind and not morals you educate a menace to society,” said Franklin D. Roosevelt. For the youth of today, education must include the Christian religion and morals. Are you born again? Then fear God as you gain education.

Challenge: Education without religion…makes man a mere clever devil.
Prayer: O God, let not education take your Word from me.
Quote: Fear God as you gain education.
Further Reading: Acts 7:22; Daniel 1:3, 4.
