Training means education in progress. I am educated, possess knowledge and experience, I am effective, but I want to go further, move one step further towards perfection, become better than I am today.
I want to add something more in the education I already have. And this is the modern and topical reality. Anyone who is not educated is doomed to stagnation, retreat, regression, loss of wealth, and ultimately poverty, because the others are moving forward and I am lying back.
That’s why all the major academic institutions in the world offer countless varieties of educational opportunities so that anyone who wants, can easily find the way to improve their knowledge and skills. And this is precisely where Jesus’ teaching meets the teaching and practice of ancient Greeks, as described in the Acts of the Apostles, and is a critical principle to our development as individuals and as people.
For, as in all matters, so in matters of faith, the lack of education and development inevitably leads to poverty, that is, to the image we all experience today.
