Sunday bulletin

Have you attended a graduation ceremony this spring? Students and parents alike breathe a sigh of relief in celebrating an educational milestone. Courses are completed, passing grades are recorded, and mortarboards are happily tossed into the air.

Still, hopefully, it is not the end of a person's education. God created us with the senses and abilities to learn throughout our lives. There is joy in discovery, whether it's a kindergartner learning to tie his shoelaces or a grad student researching and writing a doctoral thesis. Do you ever surf the net just to see what's new in gardening, cars, electronics, or something else which interests you? How often do you say or text someone: "Did you know...?"

2 Peter 3:18 But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.

If we get excited about learning new things from other people, how much more reason do we have to eagerly soak up all that our Lord has to teach us in His Word! At the end of his second letter, Peter writes: "Keep growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ" (2 Peter 3:18). It is to be a daily, lifelong activity. There is so much the Lord has to share: so much comfort, guidance, joy, and hope. "Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!" (Romans 11:33). We could spend 100 years studying Scripture and there would still be more spiritual insights and treasures from the Lord waiting for us. May we never stop learning!
