“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” – Hosea 4:6
In the church calendar this week is noted as “Education Week.” To the modern mind education means the acquisition of knowledges concerning the world and the development of human life upon it, and also preparation for one’s trade or profession. So we have our histories, and studies in the sciences and manual arts, in philosophy, psychology, and the humanities. Yet there is one Book which has had more influence in forming, directing, and determining human life than all other books combined which is often passed over today. This Book is, of course, the Word.
