In this day and age of endorsements, awards and recognitions, people feel proud to be given awards, to have titles and to be identified with certain associations. Those things are okay, but there’s a danger of us losing focus of what really matters.
“And the Jews marveled, saying, “How does this Man know letters, having never studied?” John 7:15 NKJV
Jesus did not go to school! Yet, He was known for being very wise. His words made people marvel! He was wiser than the professors of His day, even they were astonished by His wisdom. It’s okay to acquire degrees, you really can’t do without them in certain fields, but in all your getting, as a child of God, ensure that you have what truly matters. Knowledge fails, you know.
Elihu said to his older friends and to Job, in Job 32:6-8: “I am young in years, and you are very old; Therefore I was afraid, and dared not declare my opinion to you. I said, ‘Age should speak, and multitude of years should teach wisdom.’ But there is a spirit in man, and the breath of the Almighty gives him understanding.” Hallelujah! Is that same Spirit always at work in you?
