“Blessed is the one who finds wisdom, and the one who gets understanding,”
Proverbs 3:13 ESV
The new school year is underway and all the fall activities are expanding our already full schedules. My college fraternity brothers are planning a reunion at one of our home football games and the nostalgia is clawing at my soul. One of them replied that he was coming “while he was still able” and that struck a chord with me. Those college years were indeed more than over priced books and mundane courses—they were a time for gaining wisdom and understanding, and forming deep relationships that would endure the trials of a lifetime. While I think our educational system needs reform, the true value of higher learning is indeed priceless.
