1 Corinthians 13: 1 & 13

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Knowledge Builds You A Better Future (4A Carmen)

Nowadays, most of the people may think that being beautiful or handsome is more important than being knowledgeable. Some teenagers may even choose to focus on how they look instead of their studies. They think that knowledge is not too important. But I don’t agree that being beautiful is more important than being knowledgeable.

First of all, knowledge is fundamental to build you a better future. As you can see that Hong Kong is developing under a knowledge-based economy. Not only Hong Kong, most of the developed places are the same as Hong Kong. That means if you want to have a better job and earn more money in the future, you should learn more to build up your knowledge. This is because knowledgeable people are those the companies like. On the other hand, if you are beautiful but without enough knowledge, the companies may not hire you since you are lack of knowledge. None of the companies would like to hire someone who cannot help to earn money. They would not think of your beauty because beauty helps nothing. So, being knowledgeable can help you to find a better job, and also earn more money to improve your life quality in the future.

Secondly, knowledge is crucial that it can help you know how to solve problems by yourself independently. In the school, besides learning knowledge through books, we can also learn other useful techniques, like solving problems and taking care of yourself. These skills are extremely important for your everyday lives. As you grow up, there are many things for you to face to. If you have any difficulties, you still have the knowledge and know how to solve the problems independently. For example, if you don’t know how to do your homework, you can still know how to use the Internet and find some useful information on your own. But if you are beautiful without enough knowledge, you will be confused when you have any difficulties. That’s why knowledge is crucial for you to know how to solve difficulties on your own independently.

At last, knowledge is vital for us because it can be useful forever. Somebody may think that if she is beautiful, everyone will love her and she can also be a pop star in the future. But you cannot keep your beauty forever. As you grow older, you will not be as beautiful as before. Maybe a person who looks beautiful will have lots of friends. But if you grow up, or maybe you have an accident and ends up with a scar on you face, people may choose to stay away from you since you do not look beautiful anymore. On the other side, knowledge lasts forever. If you have knowledge, people will like you because they can seek help from you. Then, your relationship will not be easily ruined. Besides your relationship, you can also have a better future too. So knowledge is vital for us as it can be useful forever.

There are lots of advantages when you have knowledge instead of beauty. Knowledge is fundamental since it can build you a better future, teach you how to solve your problems independently, and also it can be useful for you forever. There is no deny that being knowledgeable is more important than being beautiful.
