Proverbs 13:18 “Poverty and shame shall be to him that refuseth instruction: but he that regardeth reproof shall be honoured”

Proverbs 13:18 “Someone who will not learn will be poor and disgraced. Anyone who listens to correction is respected.” (GNB)

Proverbs 13:18 “Need and shame will be the fate of him who is uncontrolled by training; but he who takes note of teaching will be honoured.” (BBE)

Another reason that keeps people poor is lack of training. A man who refuses to be instructed will remain poor.

There are critical and specific knowledge that must be acquired in order to become wealthy. The rich always seek after knowledge especially on how to improve on what they’re doing.

Can you imagine someone in this generation trying to master how to attach a horse to a cart in order to use it as a means of transportation? That looks ludicrous but that is the way many people live their lives.

They have very archaic ideas about what they’re doing. They have refused to improve on what they learnt years back. In the modern world, information is money. Your competitiveness and relevance in the marketplace will be greatly determined by how much you know and how well you can apply it.

No matter what you do for a living, knowledge is vital. Can you imagine somebody using a manual typewriter to produce a thousand copies of a document as against another using a computer and printer? It is just incomparable.

Hosea 4:6 “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee…”

A man that refuses to learn and acquire critical knowledge cannot be helped by God! God loves us so very much, there is no doubting the fact but then, our inability to learn will limit how far He can go with us.

God is Omniscient, the very fountain of wisdom and knowledge. How do you think He can help you without adequate knowledge? It takes knowledge to harness His operations and moves.

To be continued…
