16 Terrific Reasons for Investing in Your Education
(By Jesus:)
1. A good foundation in education will enhance and broaden your usefulness.
2. It'll open certain doors that you wouldn't otherwise be able to enter.
3. Society expects a certain level of education from professionals, and this helps you better relate to and reach the educated and labor leaders.
4. It will make you a more well-rounded missionary.
5. It will prepare you for opportunities you may not be expecting today.
6. It will make you more versatile in your gifts and knowledge base.
7. A lack of education reflects poorly on your discipline and priorities as an individual.
8. Studying teaches you self-discipline.
9. Studying teaches you accountability.
10. Studying teaches you how to process information in a constructive, useful way.
11. Studying exercises your memory and helps you with mental focus.
12. Studying teaches you how to set goals and achieve them.
13. Studying helps you to learn about yourself—your interests, the way you think, your study habits.
14. Studying provides you with resources and leads to other resources and useful interests.
15. Studying helps you learn how to set and choose priorities.
16. Studying teaches you how to find the information you need, where to look for it and how to process it, and life teaches you how to apply that information.
("Devotional: Education for Life," ML #3780:133)
