Then there is God’s way.
Look at David. Specifically look at Psalm 78:70 – 72. David wasn’t recruited from the B schools or the T schools he was taking care of sheep. He wasn’t a scholar. He was a shepherd. He wasn’t handsome, he was ruddy. He spent most of his time outdoors. Outdoors with stinky, dumb sheep.
In God’s estimation that is what prepared him to lead God’s people.
Wonder how we got the idea that degrees were better?
