Millions of dollars are spent every year in pursuit of education; but God–He will make us wise–for free. The Bible says, “For who knows a person’s thoughts except the spirit of that person, which is in him? So also no one comprehends the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God. And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who are spiritual.” (1 Corinthians‬ ‭2:11-13‬)

The highest education known to man is offered for free!

Do we believe God’s wisdom is worth pursuing? If we do, it’s reflected in the amount of time and energy we devote in His presence. When church attendance, a quick devotional, and a two minute prayer is the extent of our commitment, we can’t possibly expect to capture even a fracture His infinite knowledge. For seven years, I spent thousands of hours studying so I could be an attorney, but in the past few years when I’ve passionately pursued God, I’ve obtained richer wisdom than I ever did in school. You see, when our principal educator is God, we gain a foundation upon which to build all other education. He created us. He knows our gifts better than we do and He enlightens us about how to maximize them. He’s wiser than any professor.

He’s more personally vested in us than our parents.

Every day, He gives us an individualized education plan tailored by His deep knowledge of our unique abilities and limitations as well as what is in our future. He gives us as much of His time as we give Him of ours. His lessons build character and provide the foundation for building relationships and making decisions. What’s the cost? Well, He already paid. Dearly. He offers His wisdom to anyone who loves Him. Loving God is obeying Him. Loving God makes us wise.
