According to the United Negro College Fund, “The mind is a terrible thing to waste.” I could not agree more; I believe in education enough to have earned three degrees, including a terminal doctorate in ministry.

But I would also say this: Greater than any degree in higher learning, the mind of Christ is a terrific thing to possess. In the Apostle Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians, he writes, “‘For who has understood the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?’ But we have the mind of Christ” (2:16).

There is no more brilliant intellect than the mind of God as expressed in the word of God, the Bible. Are you living and loving from a healthy mind?
