I stumbled upon a textbook of physics the other day, very similar to what I used in high school and college. As I flipped through the yellowing pages, painful memories of those classes shot through me. Spring tension. F=ma. Wave dynamics. Physics was definitely not a favorite class but it was a necessary pre-medical course requirement. And why not? You never know when you have to solve a physics equation when a sick patient is in front of you. Truthfully, I never had to do this. So, was learning all this knowledge for naught?
Although I do not directly use physics equations in my everyday work, the principles of problem solving and critical thinking were honed during these years in classes like physics and calculus. Although tedious at times, it rounded out my education and prepared me for much more difficult decisions in medicine.
But when he was set out, Pharaoh’s daughter took him away and brought him up as her own son. And Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and was mighty in words and deeds.
Acts 7:21-22 (NKJV)
I wonder if Moses felt the same way when he was being schooled as a child in the courts of the Egyptian royalty? At that time in history, Egyptian culture was at its height and their scholars were advanced in astronomy, mathematics, and engineering. Moses received the best education in the known world and He was living a life of luxury. Yet he was always aware that he was an alien, a Hebrew adopted by an Egyptian princess. What would all that knowledge be used for since he knew he would never be accepted as a true leader of Egypt? Moses soon learned that God was preparing him for a much greater purpose, to rescue his people from enslavement by the Egyptians.
He led over two million Hebrews through the desert for forty years. God chose a man who was indeed mighty in words and deeds, having been schooled in the wisdom of the Egyptians. Moses had the ideal training for God’s mission even if he did not fully see the immediate benefits of his diverse education.
There are many courses we are obligated to take in our schooling because it is a requirement of the institution or for a job we are seeking. However, we may not always see the direct connection between the courses and our future. Our spiritual lives are no different. Times of tribulation and pain, setbacks in our jobs and relationships-these may all seem disconnected from helping us grow our faith and relationship with God. Times like these should encourage us to remember how God uses all circumstances, good and bad, to shape and conform us to the image of His Son Jesus Christ.
God is always in control.
Love and trust the Lord; seek His will in your life.
