True Education

To-day, when there are so many opportunities for education open to the individual, and when the demand for educated people to do the work of the world is so increasingly insistent, there are probably many who are suffering from a sense of lack in this direction. Those who may be yielding to this particular form of lack can find comfort in the Master's assurance, "Be of good cheer;" for a suggestion of lack, which would bring unhappiness, has no more foundation than any other of error's false claims, and can be met as readily with the truth.

What is it which one seems to lack? The word "education" is derived from the Latin word educere," which means "to lead forth." A dictionary gives the following definitions of "educate": "To bring up or guide; to develop and cultivate, whether physically, mentally, or morally, but more commonly limited to mental activities; to expand, strengthen, and discipline as the mind."
