From Denny: How often do we enter into a study not realizing how much it will change us? We often think we will learn astonishing things of which we can marvel and retell. But do we really contemplate how the practice of that study can prepare us to receive far more than a string of interesting facts?
There is knowledge, understanding and wisdom. We begin by pursuing the knowledge. Then we place the context of that new knowledge into relationship with past knowledge gained. Then we begin to practice that knowledge and gain a greater understanding of the whole. Then we apply that knowledge and understanding in a timely fashion and with great care and consideration: wisdom.
Prayer may not change things for you, but it for sure changes you for things. - Samuel M. Shoemaker
