Mentality operates like a season, A season is a time for some things to end and new things to begin. May new things begin in your life! Mentality determines our shifts in life! it must be constantly updated and upgraded to contain change! Proverbs 21:16!

Education ought to be a proactive advantage but it has become an unfair disadvantage by misdirected practice and corruption of mentality!

Education is the preservation of value, quality of life and earthly resources for the betterment of mankind. Education is a mental refinement program not just a credential appellation. Education is meant to make the scales of wastage fall off our eyes so that you can see and act out value.
There are many professors who are not possessors, Possession takes practical actions in dissolving human and environment problems in any area of specialization or field of endeavor. A people can suffer so much waste when governed by or led by educated but wasted people. Saul was a profound lawyer but he busy wasting lives because he was driven by an odd philosophy. It is not strange to have a well educated person corrupted by just a foolish philosophy.
Philosophy is an idea that has been accepted and customized. It is an individual’s thought pattern being publicized for general acceptance and adoption! A philosophy can be wise and can be foolish but once mentally imbibed, it becomes a tradition of action that governs lifestyle! Philosophy can waste education, power and authority!
A financially unlearned leader never think of financial multiplication first, he thinks of how much to spend or personally consume first. They often forget than all actions have financial and destiny implication. An educated but wasted personality prefers obituary to security, this is why security votes are embezzled because materialism has taken the place of purposeful service.
Majority of business, corporate and national resources are grossly wasted by educated people! why? they are driven by an odd philosophy? An odd philosophy is the execution of right things with wrong mentality or executing the wrong things with the right mentality. A man’s mentality will eventually engage his energy, time and resource. Mentality is perception and thinking pattern in the execution of a task, project assigned to you. examples of such mentality includes vested and selfish interest, ethnicity, racism, sub-optimality, religion, greed, ambition rather vision.
“Change is not a strange phenomenon or experience but with a wrong approach, it would only be a day dream”.
This is why a judge would pervert justice to secure his position, law makers would break them, managers will feel insecure to let his subordinates know what he knows, executive will violate the principles with veto, a husband or wife will violate his marital and family vows. A leader will convert and divert state resources for personal use. it is the reason why a group of people who are to influence the national or continental change would rather create a cartel to install control over sector and industries. Little wonder only righteousness exalts a nation. until everybody and everywhere begin to rightly think and apply their education we cant experience the change we desire! A wise man once said ” An absentee father would raise vagabond children”
Until Saul has an encounter with Christ he was educated but wasted. After he encountered Christ His name which is identity and value was change and his mentality was renewed so much he became a reference for generations. Details of his experience are documented in the book of acts 9: 1-31.
Albert Einstein once said ” Everybody is a genius, But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree. it will live its whole life believing it is stupid”. 
Charles Bukowski also profoundly said ” The problem with the world is that the intelligent people are full of doubts while the stupid ones are full of confidence”
 Complaining about change is a waste of time but Actionable change is valuable use of time. What are you doing or will begin to do to secure the future of your children? Our mentality either makes the enemy stronger or insignificant. All it takes to change your status has been configured into us before we came. The God who created us knows the end before the beginning, which means we were perfected before we were created. we came to the world because we are needed but until we are aligned we would be wasted or live as a waste.
According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a WISE MASTER BUILDER, i have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. 1 Cor 3:10!
Don’t watch life go obsolete. Make a decision to wipe off the odd philosophy that suffocates the value and quality of life! All it takes is to come to know the truth without which there is no way out of predicaments. That truth is Christ! John 14:6, John 3:3, Jeremiah 17:5! Psalms 127:1-2! Proverbs 21:16!
Until you set your mind on things above, you will always live beneath! Make today a time for new things to begin in your life! Don’t be educated but wasted!
Do kindly share and be a blessing to someone to continue the circle of positive change. Many times the people we don’t even notice know our worth but those we care most about often ridicule our worth!
until we submit to God, what seems working is a lie! Everything submits to those who submit to God! Make your choice today!
