“Learning: Route To Greatness – Part 2”

Key Verse

  “And in all matters of wisdom and understanding, that the king inquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers that were in all his realm” (Daniel 1:20).

Text — Daniel 1:17-21


Daniel and his team (the three Hebrew youth), at school in Babylon, pursued academic excellence without compromise. They recognized God as the repository of wisdom, knowledge and understanding, and purposed not to be defiled through idolatrous banquets. Christian students must be models and shine as light in  the world. They must prove the genuineness of their experiences with God by standing against ungodly and evil practices prevalent in schools these days. God fulfilled His precious promises to Daniel and his friends. By their stand, they honoured God, and He blessed them. The psalmist says, “I have more understanding than all my teachers; for thy testimonies are my meditation; I understand more than the ancients because I keep thy precepts” (Psalm 119:99-100).

No wonder these young men were ten times incomparably better than their colleagues. They were undoubtedly great. God can do the same for you. Beyond being disciplined and committed to your studies, you need true fellowship with God through the new birth experience. This is what guarantees true greatness.


Shine as light in the world


The new birth experience guarantees true greatness. 

Prayer for today

Lord, help me to learn and become great, in Jesus’ name.
