Broaden Your Horizons!
“Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes;” - Isaiah 54:2 (KJV)
For you to remain relevant in any field in this 21st Century, you need to have a mind with broad interests. You must broaden your mind and be continually searching; ready to accommodate new ideas.
King Solomon had such a mind and none of his contemporaries surpassed him in wisdom, fame, wealth, and riches (1 Kings 4:29-30 TLB).
One of the ways of broadening your mind is acquiring knowledge in the areas of your interest. If you are a professional for example an accountant, a doctor, an engineer, a pastor, or an entrepreneur in any field, attain all the necessary knowledge in those fields so that the world can demand you.
The world is changing at a fast rate and if you dare to ‘sleep’ and not search for knowledge you will soon become irrelevant.
You need to remain awake and broaden your horizons. Spend your time, for example, studying relevant books, magazines, articles, and so on. You have no time to waste!
Precious Father, thank You for the admonition through Your Word. I know that the limit of my life is the ‘size’ of my mind—my mental capacity. I, therefore, commit myself to acquiring relevant knowledge since that is one way of broadening my horizons. In Jesus' name. Amen.
