True Purpose

—HEART TO HEART—

 I was not the greatest student growing up. I just could not understand why it made a difference if I knew history, social studies, or even where to put the comma or when to use ‘see’ or ‘saw’. Why should I know what year anything happened, since it was so long ago? Today I wish I had paid better attention. The reason I struggled is because I did not see clearly the purpose for all that knowledge. I was too busy just trying to have fun. Sometimes people feel the same way about Bible knowledge. However, the purpose of all this Bible knowledge is for us to be safe and prosperous in this life and have life eternal. Jesus said “You do err, not knowing the Scriptures nor the power of God.” (Matthew 22:29) Hosea 4:6 says, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” We must get back to the Bible for true purpose and life-giving message.
