The responsibility that goes with having an education has huge significance. […] The reason why most of the young people come to college is because their parents said, “If you go to college and get a good education, you’ll get a good job and make a lot of money so you can buy a lot of stuff.” But the purpose of an education is to equip you to be a more effective servant of God in the world. If four years of university can increase your effectiveness of what you can do for others in the name of Christ, it is the best investment that you can make. But if the education is simply to get a job to make a lot of money, you have to raise the question of why you’re doing it.
