Seek Them Not
Spurgeon never attended college. Not because he despised education, but because the Lord revealed to him that his heart wasn’t right in seeking that education. He sensed the Lord saying, “Seekest thou great things for thyself? Seek them not!” 1 Peter 5:5, 6b: “In the same way, you who are younger, be subject to the elders. And all of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. And God will exalt you in due time, if you humble yourselves under his mighty hand.” (1 Peter 5:5, 6b) Let God exalt you in His time.
