You don’t need an education to accomplish great things

    1 Corinthians 1:26-31 says, For consider your calling, brothers: not many of you were wise according to worldly standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth. [27] But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong; [28] God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are, [29] so that no human being might boast in the presence of God. [30] And because of him you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption, [31] so that, as it is written, “Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.”

    There is very little benefit spiritually in having degrees, physical power, or nobility. It is often the ones without these things to accomplish His purpose. Many of the prophets were without formal education, money, or reputation yet they still accomplished great things through the power of God.

    Often when one has a great education, power, or nobility they begin to trust in those things instead of trusting God. Yet when we humble ourselves before God He can accomplsih great things through us!
