There exist another type of education apart from the secular one we all are used to. The education I am talking about is of more importance than its counterparts. Granted, secular education offers you wisdom, friends, thinking ability, social skills and practical training, this type of education offers all those and even more. This type of education is no other than ” spiritual education “.
Just how important is this type of education ? A holy book answers : “….. godly devotion ( which can only be gotten through spiritual education) is beneficial for all things, as it holds promise of the life now and the life that is to come” – 1 Timothy 4:8. That is it. Our very existence, our grasp on the real life depends on this type of education.
Now that we know how important this type of education is, how then can you acquire such education ? Simply 2 timothy 3:16,17 answers : “16 All Scripture is inspired of God and beneficial for teaching, for reproving, for setting things straight, for disciplining in righteousness, 17 so that the man of God may be fully competent, completely equipped for every good work.” It is only through the accurate study of the bible can we get spiritually educated.
For benefits of a sound spiritual education check on the part 2 of this article on http://www.ogunleyeakinola.wordpress.com by this time next weekend.
Be sure to enjoy the remaining part of your weekend.
