When you are at a lower location it’s always hot. As you move higher it becomes cooler. Here we are looking at the higher you go in education the cooler it becomes. Education is power. Knowledge is an asset which no one can steal from you. They will steal your car, money, belongings but will never manage your knowledge. What exactly do I mean by saying the higher you go in education the cooler it becomes? Simply, it means with true education in you, your life will be smooth and swift. I will explain this properly in this article keep reading please.
What is Education? Education is the harmonious development of physical, mental and spiritual powers in us.
We have three things to develop in us harmoniously which include physical, mental and spiritual powers. Let’s look at physical power development. For one to be educated you must have physical powers which we gain through ostentatious exercise and proper diet. Exercise, leisure, rest and proper diet contribute to physical empowerment and general health.
Mental powers is another aspect which when developed harmoniously with the rest you become a useful being to the society. Unfortunately most of us never use this tool called mental power. We ought to learn how to unleash our mental powers to realize and actualize ourselves. It was the other day during my birthday merriment that I realized am growing old. My friends wished me a happy birthday and one of them asked me what I have accomplished so far. He added by saying that, if am not yet there I should know everything is at my reach and am supposed to compose myself and I will do wonders. This kept me thinking and reminded me that all our dreams, aspiration and ambitions are in us, thus we ought to focus on unleashing what is in us by using the mental powers God gave us.
Spiritual powers is what many of us lack. We spend a lot of money, travel long distances, risk our life and spend many sleepless nights to acquire “false education”. I call it false education because with it without spiritual powers it’s useless, it becomes useful when we incorporate both physical, mental and spiritual powers.
One thing we should know God is the greatest educationist.
In (Proverbs 1:7 KJV) it says “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.” Someone will be confused when the bible say fearing the Lord. What is fearing the Lord according to the bible? We get this answer in (Proverbs 8:13 KJV) it says “The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: pride, and arrogance, and the evil way, and forward mouth, do I hate.”
There is great need for spiritual nourishment in our life. Enjoyment of coolness in education is attained only through harmonious development of the above three aspects. It’s very unfortunate that these days we have many “educated fools”. Educated fools are people who claim to be educated but there deeds are totally opposite, you will think they are mentally ill instead. I don’t blame them because they got it wrong, right from genesis of their education journey. They went to great universities and studied had and attained first class degrees, masters and PhD. Immediately after completion they thought they were good to go with that bunch of papers.
Actually they forgot very important things, physical and spiritually powers. Just imagine a fellow who is learned and falls sick all times just because they never exercise. This is an individual who cannot do some basic things in life because they are not physically fit. Social life do not exist in them, all they know is their books and big papers. The same people will at times tell you that there is no God. Such a person is not friendly, their life is totally weird and unexplainable. They acquired false education instead of true education.
Unfortunately most of our higher institutions are offering false education. Just look at what is happening inside our prestigious institutions, unimaginable things are taking place. Drinking, use of drugs, cohabiting, rape, prostitution, homosexual activities, illegal business, corruption just to mention a few are major activities happening in our best higher institutions.
Our higher education institutions have become Great Gates of Hell.
Unless these institution incorporate and endeavor to teach gospel (word of God) holy scriptures and engraving them in the heads of youth, these institutions will live to be corrupt platforms. Our generation will continue getting false education which will affect our country hugely.
Home schooling is very important to our youth today. Parents you ought to take large responsibility in feeding your children with fundamental education before they go to these higher education with corrupt education. Home schooling is one of the preventive measures taken to prevent our children from being swallowed by false education. Ensure your children are spiritually empowered so that when they are out there they remain stable to their fundamental beliefs. Parents should create time to be with their children so that we educate them extensively. This will help them to avoid the false education which is in high supply in our society today.

True education produces good men and women. False education produces bad, corrupt and wicked men and women. It’s very discouraging seeing our youth graduating from these higher institutions and lead a false life. This proves to us that the education given to them is infectious and false. If this education provided was pure and true we could have good men and women who are ready to change our society and world at large.
Our society is full of people who have acquired false education right from our political leaders, spiritual leaders and even those in rural areas have got this impure injection. Just imagine a leader, father, church leader shamelessly sleeping with a young lady yet they are said to be graduates. Our women walk around naked claiming be to their latest fashion when they are told its bad they sing and demonstrate “My dress my choice my right”. Youth are very vulnerable, their teachers, parents, neighbors, mentors have turned into hyenas and decided to devour on them. It has become a confused society.
Something must be done urgently to save this situation. Religious societies should play a big role in this by coming up with institutions which will foster for true education. Church members should support these institutions so that our generation to get true education which supports harmonious development of physical, mental and spiritual powers. The governments have all the resources to implement this, they have to just come up with supporting policies and get the right human resource to implement this. Let’s come together and save this situation.
God is the greatest educationist in (Job 12:13 KJV) it says “With him is wisdom and strength, he hath counsel and understanding”. World education without Gods knowledge is vanity, we ought to love Gods word and develop ourselves harmoniously using the three aspects. God understands our situation and warned us in His word (2 Timothy 3:1&7 KJV) “1. This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 7. Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth”. In (Ecclesiastes 12:12 KJV) says “And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh”
What God is trying to pass across to us His children is that we should focus more on His word and truth. His word shall save us, and not the pleasures of this world at all. One important thing to note is to acquire the true education and shun from false education. Whatever we learn we should learn to implement and heed to it. Let’s stand for our norms and no other bad things around us. Remember if you cannot stand for something you can fall for anything.
