Dear all,

This coming Sunday, is observed as Student Sunday. We have all been students one time or the other. The fundamental aspect of the life of a student is anchored on an ability to seek knowledge. Moreover knowledge is perceived as power in today’s culture of learning; knowledge, that is to be translated into money.

The biblical concept of study and learning is centered on the thought of wisdom, as against knowledge. Wisdom is a combined force of faith, maturity and knowledge. Seeking knowledge without a sense of arrogance is important from a biblical point of view. Knowing the world around us and using it for the human community is also important. This wisdom helps you to be stable in the midst of winds of change, and you will not be ‘driven and tossed by the wind’. [James 1: 6]

These days many parents create in their children’s mind more of anxiety than a sense of seeking a mature knowing of the world around them. While emphasizing the need for studiousness let us as parents, inculcate a sense of better balance in the minds of our children about knowledge and wisdom.

Let me conclude with James’s words of wisdom about true knowledge; ‘If any of you is lacking in wisdom, ask God, who gives to all generously and ungrudgingly, and it will be given to you’.    [James 1: 5]

Men’s Sunday is around the corner. We look forward to men’s leadership in the Sunday service on June 16th and wish that it will be a very meaningful and fruitful experience.

Yours in Christ,
George Oommenachen
