Education Is Not Wisdom

Education – To provide schooling by formal instruction or supervised practice.

Hebrews 5:11-6:1We have much to say about this, but it is hard to explain because you are slow to learn. In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word all over again. You need milk, not solid food! Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.  Therefore let us leave the elementary teachings about Christ and go on to maturity.  (NIV 1984)

My Musings – The world is full of educated fools, who have been taught but failed to learn.  Who took in the teaching, but could not use (apply) it.

My Advice – You have one of the finest educations that money could buy. But money did not buy it all. You earned it with a lot of hard work and dedication – and we are proud of you for that. Now dedicate yourself to not only make a living, but to make a life for Christ.
