Read: Daniel 1:17
17 As for these four children, God gave them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom: and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams.
Memorise: . 2 Timothy 2:15
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
A mediocre person is comfortable with being average. A mediocre student will score 50 percent in a subject, jubilate about it, and not strive to get a higher score. My child, it is not good to settle for average when you can be excellent like God.
I once had a mathematics teacher who would not tolerate mediocrity. I once scored 80% in his exam and ran to show him my script in excitement, he said: “Is this all you can do? Why didn’t you score 90%?” This gingered me to study harder. In the next examination,
I scored 90%, and I thought he would be impressed, but he said: “You tried, but what happened to 100%?” This was when I realized that he wouldn’t appreciate anything less than the best. Today, I can say that the teacher trained me to give my all to any good cause.
Rather than joke or laze around, spend more time studying to upgrade your grades, and if you are at the top, you can go further by becoming outstanding. Apostle Paul was not the only apostle in his days, but he was outstanding; he wrote the highest number of books in the New Testament.
Don’t be satisfied with the level you are at right now: there is room at the top. Work for it, and trust God to make you the best!
Do you aim for the best in all that you do?
HYMN 6: I’m Pressing On The Upward Way
I’m pressing on the upward way,
New heights I’m gaining everyday;
Still praying as I onward bound
“Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.”
Lord, lift me up and let me stand,
By faith, on Heaven’s table-land;
Where love, and joy, and light abound,
Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.
My heart has no desire to stay
Where doubts arise, and fears dismay;
Though some may dwell where these abound,
My constant aim is higher ground.
Beyond the mist I fain would rise,
To rest beneath unclouded skies,
Above earth’s turmoil peace is found
By those who dwell on higher ground.
I long to scale the utmost height,
Though rough the way, and hard the fight,
My song, while climbing, shall resound
Lord, lead me on to higher ground.
Lord, lead me up the mountain side
I dare not climb without my Guide;
And, heaven gained, I’ll gaze around,
With grateful heart from higher ground.
