NIV devotions for Women

 At Issue - Education

Verse:  Job 8:8-13

Getting a degree (or multiple degrees) is a wonderful, satisfying accomplishment that we should look on with pride. However, our society tends to value formal education more than the wisdom of age. Reflecting on Job’s suffering, Bildad urged him to learn from the instruction of former generations. While there’s great value in both education and in learning from our elders, there’s also a difference between a formal education and wisdom—applying that knowledge. No matter how many degrees you have, education doesn’t make you always right or better than others. Work at having a teachable heart that learns from others, not one that hides behind a degree.

This devotion is from the NIV New Women's Devotional Bible or True Identity by Zondervan. Used with permission.
