STOP AND THINK – Education in itself without moral correction does little except to produce clever sinners. (Melvin Tinker, the vicar of St John’s in Newland, Australia)
Education is extremely important, of course, but as Martin Luther King Jr. said, “Intelligence plus character—that is the goal of true education.” To teach facts—even as accurate as they may be—will not produce men and women of integrity. Students must approach their education with a willingness to learn truth and a desire to develop character and integrity.
It is senseless to pay tuition to educate a rebel who has no heart for truth. (Proverbs 17:16)
