Knowledge isn’t free. You have to pay attention. (David Heymann, American doctor)

Education is expensive. Whether it’s public schools financed by taxes or private education with tuition, it’s all very costly. But Heymann wasn’t referring to financial cost. He makes the strong point that to learn you have to “pay attention.” We may gather dates and names, but for them to be helpful, we must focus on how to use that information. That’s education of value.

Jesus: “Pay close attention to what you hear. The closer you listen, the more understanding you will be given—and you will receive even more.” (Mark 4:24)
