Proverbs 1:5; Philippians 4:9

Yesterday, we saw Cash and Education as two forms of wealth. We shall proceed today, looking at Critical Knowledge as a form of wealth.

This is different from education. Education, as I referred to earlier, is formal education. Critical knowledge is the knowledge that governs different sectors of life, and you are not taught this within the four walls of an educational institution. It is like school after school. It is the knowledge that teaches you how to relate, interact, honour, and respect others. For example, it is critical knowledge for me to teach my son how to dress well, and he has personally found out that there is more to life and now dresses corporately.

You need critical knowledge to prosper in the channel of wealth you want to venture into. You should not go into the buying and selling of any product without critical knowledge of how you will thrive in that business.

In every field of life, there is a provision for the acquisition of critical knowledge, and it is called by different names [There is a provision for the acquisition of critical knowledge in every field of life, and it goes by various names]. For example, in engineering, it is called pupillage, where a student engineer attaches himself to a practising engineer. In the work of the ministry, when people wonder and ask what the secret of success in ministry is, I say, “God’s way of training leaders is not through a formal school (particularly after you have gone through one); it is to attach you to somebody in order to train you.”

When you cross over from formal education to the critical knowledge section, it is a time to learn and ask questions. You will be cheating yourself and endangering your future if you do not ask questions when you are being trained for critical knowledge. How well you do in the acquisition of critical knowledge will affect your performance in life.

PRAYER: Lord, open my eyes to the areas I need to acquire critical knowledge for wealth flow in my life in Jesus’ name. Amen!
