Grow beyond the second grade.
It is amazing to me how people move on from the second grade in some things but stay stuck in time in other things—often very important things.
I know people who took hard courses in algebra, a second language, and grammar in High School and College but their knowledge of the bible is little better than what they learned in Sunday School back when they were little children.
I know people who have read college level tomes on philosophy, sociology, and history but have never read a book on how to have a successful marriage or be a successful parent.
How can this be?
The ONE THING for today: Determine today that you are going to keep growing—especially in the things that truly matter.
Proverbs 8:10-11 (NLT)
Choose my instruction rather than silver, and knowledge rather than pure gold. 11 For wisdom is far more valuable than rubies. Nothing you desire can compare with it.
