Education, a Poem

leave a comment »

Education

Where’s your edge?

The edge of your knowledge

Lies way beyond college.

It’s having faith

in the truth you’ve heard

from the living Word.

It’s by faith that we receive the mind of Jesus,

who from sin and ignorance frees us.

Lift up your thought for all humankind.

Love God with all your heart, soul, and mind.

Study the Word and

Outstrip your teachers,

Overtake your preachers.

Go to school, college, and university,

Life commences into maturity.

Information, knowledge, wisdom,

Christ is the way to freedom.

To know him is sweet,

A lamp for your feet,

A light for your path.

Just do the math and have a laugh,

Because the edge of your knowledge

Lies way beyond college.
