Top Bible Scriptures that will Direct You to Always Put God First in your Education
What does the Bible say about learning?
Learning is a blessing from the Lord. Are you growing in your knowledge of God and His Word? The wisdom from the Bible prepares, cautions, encourages, comforts, guides, and supports us in our time of need.
Below we will learn more about learning and how we can gain wisdom on our daily walk with Christ.
Paul was a well schooled guy and he was at his day’s best Jewish school (Acts 22:3), and he spent his education skillfully communicating with people from all cultures (Acts 17:28; Titus 1:12).
But Paul was obviously not sanctified by his education (1 Timothy 1:16), and he warned against those who “came to the knowledge of truth and to know it always and never” (2 Timothy 3:7). Knowing facts simply does not make you better and you are a highly educated fool indeed.
The bible also highlighted that Christians “study to shew thyself approved unto God” (2 Timothy 2:15, KJV). The NIV makes this verse, “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.”
As much as we take education seriously, its God’s desire that you excel in your education. This means He wants you to have your education in a godly manner. That is why in the bible there are verses that talk about learning and education.
And this is the first guide every Christian student must abide by. Hence, in this article, you will learn all the bible verses and scriptures about education and learning that will surprise you.
Here are top bible verses and scriptures that directs you to always put God first in all your learning and education:
Mark 10:13-16 ESV
And they were bringing children to him that he might touch them, and the disciples rebuked them. But when Jesus saw it, he was indignant and said to them, “Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.” And he took them in his arms and blessed them, laying his hands on them.
Revelation 1:1-20 ESV
The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show to his servants the things that must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, who bore witness to the word of God and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, even to all that he saw. Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear, and who keep what is written in it, for the time is near. John to the seven churches that are in Asia: Grace to you and peace from him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven spirits who are before his throne, and from Jesus Christ the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of kings on earth. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood.
Psalm 23:1-6 ESV
A Psalm of David. The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
