How much of what you’ve learn throughout university or college was actually useful on the job? Throughout seminary, not everything I’ve read has shaped the way I actually carry out ministry. Throughout your own life, you may find that though you may agree with 75% or more of the books you’ve read, they aren’t necessarily books you can actually say: “Amen. Yeah, that’s right on! And I’m going to do that because it makes complete sense to me to do it.” You might end up throwing away more than 80% or more of what you’ve read and put to use only 2-5% of what you’ve learn into real-life ministry.
If you’ve been to university, bible college or seminary, what percentage of what you’ve learned do you think you actually make use of?
