After being in school for basically my entire existence, I graduated in December. It has been such a blessing for me be able to go to school, which I truly love, because I know that so many people don't have that opportunity. Or if they do, it is much harder for them. I am so thankful for my parents who have provided for me and supported me along the way. I know I have had it so easy.
Don't get me wrong, I love to learn. What's crazy is that after completing my BS, I still don't have the ability to get the job I want. To be a Physical Therapist, I have to go to school for three more years! Being in school my whole life STILL hasn't taught me what I need to know. It reminds me of the Paul's words in 1 Corinthians 3:18-19:
Do not deceive yourselves. If any of you think you are wise by the standards of this age, you should become "fools" so that you may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is
foolishness in God's sight.
and again in 1 Corinthians 1:18-21:
For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written: "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate." Where is the wise person? Where is the teacher of the law? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe.
I am so thankful for the true message of wisdom. By the standards of this world, I know nothing. We are constantly grasping for more knowledge, never knowing enough. But according to God, I have everything I need. Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!
