The main reason the black race lags behind the rest of the world is a lack of intellectual development alongside spiritual development. Spiritual development is very important. You will need a strong spirit to persevere in the face of challenges and difficult opposition. However, your powerful spirit must be combined with knowledge. If you want to make the most of your life, you must have love, faith, and wisdom in your spirit. While nurturing knowledge and comprehension in your mind. Spiritual growth is required to shape your vision and identity. Then, on top of that, you layer your intellectual development to help you make the most of your spiritual aptitude.
Nikola Tesla, the famed inventor, once explained that early in his life, the vision of the things he wanted to invent was clear. But the principles were unknown to him. This highlights the fact that, despite knowing what he wanted to do. He did not have the necessary knowledge to begin the work at that time. The ability to invent was already in his spirit. However, the necessary knowledge and science were unknown. A lot of divine ideas and potential, waste for this reason. The person knows what to do. But they do not know how to go about it.
The spiritually wise person is in constant search of knowledge and training. They know that divine intelligence is not very effective without the facts. So, you develop your spirit and then equip your mind. That is when your gift will make room for you, and bring you into proximity with great people (Proverbs 18:15-16). It’s not random that the most influential biblical figures were well educated for their times. They did not rely solely on their special spiritual gifts or spiritual development. Today, if we want to be successful, we must do both.
