TOPIC: ACQUIRE EXCELLENT EDUCATION
TEXT: ACTS 7:17-23
MEMORY VERSE: “And Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and was mighty in words and in deeds” (ACTS 7:22).
The ancient Greek philosopher, Aristotle, stated that, "Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all." Moses, undoubtedly, had the best Egyptian education in the palace of Pharaoh, acquiring an astute and inquiring mind for effective leadership. Beyond this, however, his heart received even a greater quality education in childhood under his mother and while in secret communion with God in the wilderness. With the heart and mind thus equipped with excellent education, Moses gallantly led the Israelites through the toughest period of their history, fulfilling his ministry. God can use anyone who makes himself or herself available, despite academic, personality and other shortcomings. However, we must not miss any opportunity of acquiring high quality education and training for intellectual and spiritual growth and development. Just like great men and women in contemporary times, this could advance our lives and ministries beyond our wildest imagination. So, settle down to your studies; read, research, pray and spread out your wings like an eagle to reach your God-given destiny.
QUOTE: So, settle down to your studies.
CHALLENGE: Acquire excellent education for your heart and mind.
PRAYER: Teach me, LORD, to find excellent education in You.
