Good evening. As we go through life, we learn a whole lot. In fact, it’s almost safe to say that the kind and quality of information we are exposed to are among the key determinants of the outcomes of our lives.
That’s one of the reasons why nations insist on quality education. This also accounts for a degree to the relationship between educational status and poverty.
There is information that we look for, there is information that looks for us. In every phase of life, there seems to be a need to know.
However not all information is relevant to the general course of our lives, some information morphs to become absolutely relevant and consistently so, whilst some become relegated into obsoleteness.
For information that is critical to our entire course of life, every time we come across them in the scriptures, a certain weight of emphasis is added to them. Sometimes you find the scriptures urging us to bind that information as a frontlet between our eyes, or you find words like verily, verily or knowing this first attached to them.
So when the Apostle Peter was writing his second Epistle, you find him reminding his audience of certain truths, even going as far as saying that, he intends on ensuring that after his demise, they are always kept in remembrance of those things.
Therefore as we go through life, let’s search for and keep steadfastly before our minds those information that is most critical.
An example of such is this wonderful verse in Proverbs 4.
Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
