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.

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.

    Original post June 14, 2019 from “A Dad’s Devotions.” As important as education is, it is not the only thing in life that teaches us. My mom and dad were unable to get beyond the 8th grade. But their learning went way beyond what any classroom could teach. My son graduated college summa cum laude, but realizes what he learned growing up at home and at church, while not giving him a diploma, gave him things just as valuable.
