When one thinks of the long-term adventure of education, we understand that learning is going to take place for the rest of our lives. How much more when it comes to the things of God. Take the very basics – reverence for God, the beginning of wisdom – it will take us a lifetime to remember and then to realize that we have to be humble if we are ever to enter the presence of God and receive honour from Him.
One who approaches God without reverence does not know God at all. The more we know Him, the more we’ll fear Him and reverence Him when we come to Him in prayer. We come to Him with boldness, because He is our Father. But we come to Him with reverence too, because He is God.
