During my re-read of Fundamentals of Christian Education I came across these powerful and inspiring words from EW.
"The youth (and probably us old folks) should be learners for the next world. Perseverance to the acquisition of knowledge, controlled by the fear and love of God, will give then (and us) an increased power for good in this life, and those who have made the most of their privileges to reach the highest attainments here, will take these valuable acquisitions with them into the future life. They (we) have sought and obtained that which is imperishable. The capability to appreciate the glories that "eye hath not seen, nor ear heard," will be proportionate to the attainments reached in the cultivation of the faculties in this life."
This is something to think about....a lot....I believe.
God Bless. e.c.
