Many people are concerned about the education of their children.
They want them to go to the best schools.
They want them to have good teachers who are knowledgeable, as well as kind and understanding.
They want a solid curriculum with adequate preparation for living in society and attaining a productive career.
As children get a bit older, some of them begin to feel this way about their own education.
Applying themselves to their studies, they look toward the future and the positive outcomes a good education will avail.
Who wouldn’t want this?
In Psalm 25:4-5, the writer prays:
Make me to know Your ways, O Lord;
teach me Your paths.
Lead me in Your truth and teach me,
for You are the God of my salvation;
for You I wait all the day long.
How important is it to us to know the ways of the Lord?
How important is it to us to have the Lord teach us His paths?
How important is it to have the Lord lead us in His truth?
Do we long to have this spiritual “education” from the Lord for ourselves and our children?
In light of eternity, it will not matter what college we have graduated from.
Our vocational skills here on earth will not be of great significance when we die.
Our relationship with God and our salvation through Jesus, His Son, will be the most important thing then.
Shouldn’t it be the most important thing now?
