I believe life is in phases and humans are in sizes. Knowledge determines size. The deeper your insights the higher you fly. Understanding equals outstanding. Ignorance isn’t an excuse in law, you will pay for what you don’t know today and be humiliated.
Knowledge is an all time requirement for scaling heights. Across all ages, anywhere knowledge goes, civilization goes. It first came to Egypt before it came to India, the Aegean, China, Greece, Rome, Europe took it and America hijacked it (read about history of civilization here). Knowledge is the key to freedom. A man who isn’t building a library is building a mortuary without knowing.
Henry Ford says, “Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.” Living without learning is like living in the wilderness; dinning with the dead.
Knowledge is power. Readers are leaders. While education makes you literate, literature makes you successful. If you stop learning after graduation you would be degenerated. Education offers certificate while self development offers success.
To be informed is to be transformed and to be uninformed is to be deformed. It’s the quality of your information that determines the quality of your success in your field. Students don’t fail exams because they don’t know what to write in exams, they fail because they don’t know enough. People fail in life as a result of lack of quality information. You need quality insights about life in general and your field to be successful.
Knowledge is the key to dominion. Daniel understood by books, Paul was a strong advocate of knowledge, he told his ministry son, Timothy, study to show thyself approved, (2.Tim.2:15) and Jesus was an addicted reader during his earthly ministry.
There are no mountains anywhere, there are ignorance. It’s the quality of your light that determines the quality of your life.
Jesus says, woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered (Luke 11:52).
Knowledge is the key to liberty. Get into extensive study on topical issues concerning you and apply those discoveries (haphazard studies will produce no results, target the topic that needs most urgent attention, don’t just read newspapers; get materials that address the issues). Did you know the difference between developing and developed nations? Developing nations celebrate certificates while developed nations celebrate discoveries.
Wake up! It’s never too late to undertake discoveries. Bury your head in your book and get lost in the world of discoveries. It will be clear to all that you serve the living God.
