STOP AND THINK – People are usually more convinced by reasons they discovered themselves than by those found by others. (Blaise Pascal, 17th century French scientist and writer)
Pascal’s comment expresses an important lesson for parents and teachers to learn and adapt their teaching accordingly. When we offer all the right answers as facts, no matter the work we may have put into the discovering of the truth, we shortchange the learners from the excitement and value of discovery. Give learning the excitement of search and discovery.
Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law (Psalm 119:18-20). When I applied my mind to know wisdom. . .then I saw all that God has done (Ecclesiastes 8:16-17).
