STOP AND THINK – Soap and education are not as sudden as a massacre, but they are more deadly. (Mark Twain)

Someone has described this as “Twain’s sour attitude toward teaching/education.” Surely, he used soap, and he certainly had the benefit of learning no matter how much formal education he may have had. Perhaps the lesson for us is that the right kind of learning is most valuable but a poor education can be destructive.

The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life (Proverbs 13:14). In your teaching show integrity, seriousness and soundness of speech (Titus 2:7-8).
