I see so many well intentioned parents who think higher education should be their teen’s top priority.
I would like to suggest that higher education should not be your teen’s top priority.
Parents mistakenly believe that because their kids are aiming towards higher education that somehow this makes them a quality human being.
But, does a good education and a high-paying position necessarily bring a person the righteousness, peace and joy that the Bible calls the Kingdom of God?
Wouldn’t we prefer that our kids grow up to be honest and God-fearing men and women who love their work – regardless of how menial it may seem?
Of what use is a six figure income if a person compromises his moral and spiritual convictions?
For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his own soul?
Parents would do well to nurture their teen’s moral and spiritual qualities as a priority – not just as an addendum to their professional goals.
