STOP AND THINK – The greatest and noblest pleasure which we have in this world is to discover new truths, and the next is to shake off old prejudices. (Frederick II, the Great, 18th century Prussian ruler)

Could it be said that if we are not learning we are not living? From infancy to adulthood, life is one long learning experience. And it’s a great joy to experience new truth, to discover new ideas. And, in the process of learning, we will very likely discover that some of the preconceived ideas we’ve held were wrong. The result is growth, maturity, and pleasure.

Let the wise listen and add to their learning, and let the discerning get guidance. … Instruct the wise and they will be wiser still; teach the righteous and they will add to their learning. (Proverbs 1:5, Proverbs 9:9)
