STOP AND THINK – We teach what we know, we reproduce what we are. (Winston Churchill, 20th century British prime minister)
Too often teaching is merely the transferring of information. Was Churchill saying that there’s something more to learning than just remembering the facts? The goal of education ought to include wisdom and understanding, and it must equip the students for life. The teacher, then, a person of character and integrity, will pour his life into his students.
Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom. (James 3:13)
