This week I choose to teach my student about the importance of education with respect to continuing education. Education is a commandment of God and it is my opinion that what we do not learn here we will have to learn in the Celestial Kingdom before we can progress to become as God is now. This week I had an open discussion with Alicia about the importance of education.
She said that there is always room for improvement and that there is no limit to the amount of learning that a person can get or receive. She also said that knowledge is power. Then we discussed that without knowledge there are people in the word that will take advantage of you. She also said that we do not stop learning. We can not stop learning or we should never stop learning. She would like to continue her education, but right now life is in the way of that.
We should seek for education in the secular world and the spiritual world as well. Furthering our education is a commandment of God. To become closer to God we should follow all of his commandments. Continuing education can also lead to a better life here in the world. If you have a job where you can a good income you can provide well for you family. If not providing for your family can be very difficult.
If she had not education she does now she would not have been able to help her family when she was single in the Philippines. Now that she is married she would have to look for jobs that are low paying and need no degree to perform.
If she had a higher degree than she does now her life might have been much different. She would have a great income and she also suggested that she might not have met her husband. So knowledge is good as long as it does not interfere with the commandments of God.
