The Bible is a great place to go if you want to learn more about a certain subject and what God says about it. That is exactly what we are going to be chatting about this week! Let’s see what the Bible has to say about school and education:
Proverbs 16:16, “How much better to get wisdom than gold! To get understanding is to be chosen rather than silver.”
Learning and knowledge are both so much more valuable than material things! You can have knowledge with you wherever you go and put it to good use in countless situations, whether it be taking a school test or ordering off a menu in a far away country (Glad you took that language class now, huh?).
James 1:5, “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.”
When God talks about “knowledge”, “education”, or “wisdom”, He doesn’t mean just academic knowledge, He also means spiritual and Bible knowledge. In God’s eyes it is so important to read the Bible each day and gain further understanding of Him, as well as what you learn in school. If you ask Him to deepen your relationship with Him, He will gladly and generously answer that prayer.
2 Peter 1:5, “For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge.”
Heighten your faith by practicing things like love, peace, and kindness and learn more about these things to live for God. Knowing more about the world will help you to appreciate God for making it. The outcome of having a deeper faith in Christ will be wanting to be more like Him, and the outcome of that will be wanting to be know more about Him.
So, to summarize:
-Knowledge is important -If you want to know more about God, He will generously give you knowledge (a.k.a. His Word the Bible). -When you have a relationship with God, fill it with knowledge and understanding, as well as growth in Godliness.
From the Bible we can know that knowledge is really important to God. So, keep going to school! Keep learning, reading, and praying. Comment below on your favorite Bible verse and maybe it will make an appearance in an upcoming post! (You never know).
