Scholarship is not simply the production of knowledge. . . [In former times] scholars chiefly engaged in the transmission of knowledge for the purpose of formation. (Chris Gehrz, college professor)
They say that knowledge is doubling every 12 hours or so. Wow, how can we keep up with it all? We can’t. But as Gehrz suggests, there’s something equally important with accumulating information. The information we gain must be passed on to learners who will do more than merely absorb more facts. The goal is life transformation; learning that produces change.
Supplement your. . . moral excellence with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with patient endurance, and patient endurance with godliness (2 Peter 1:5, 6).
