Magna Cum Laude

I didn’t graduate with anything like the honors above. Oh I had a couple of things back in High School, but in college and grad school, I was glad to graduate. But there is something funny about that special honor, because it sounds like “come Lordy” as in, get back here Lord before I really get myself in trouble. But of all the honors and degrees we can receive, there is none better than, “Well done, my good and faithful servant.” That degree doesn’t come from a piece or paper or a stack credits to your name, papers written or classes taken. It comes from the wisdom from above, not granted by colleges, but by the Lord, through the grandest textbook of all time, God’s Holy Word. Of all the books in the world one could ever own, let his hands be laid upon this one. For in it are the words of eternal life.

Have a blessed Sunday. Read His Word. Worship well and often. For these mean more than a whole stack of degrees.
