Worshipping God Is the First Step in Learning
“Start with God — the first step in learning is bowing down to God; only fools thumb their noses at such wisdom and learning” (Proverbs 1:7 The Message).
How do you become a great student?
The Bible says it like this: “Start with God — the first step in learning is bowing down to God; only fools thumb their noses at such wisdom and learning” (Proverbs 1:7 The Message).
The apostle Paul once told Timothy that the problem with many people was they knew a lot — but not what was most important. In fact, Jesus told the religious leaders, “You have your heads in your Bibles constantly because you think you'll find eternal life there. But you miss the forest for the trees. These Scriptures are all about me! (John 5:39 The Message).
One day, after your life has ended, you’ll stand before God. It’ll be your final exam. It’ll be far more important than any exam a teacher or professor gives you.
At that final exam, God won’t talk about how you did in math or social studies.
He’ll ask, “Did you know me?”
How will you answer?
