I heard of a seminary professor who once told the story of a student who made this bold claim: “I’m going to finish my education and then I will get married.” The professor wisely advised, “There are two things wrong with this statement: One, marriage is an education; and two, we are never finished with our education.”
In honor of celebrating National Lutheran School’s week at Christ Lutheran School, this week’s soul food for Friday offer these quotes to feed your passion for learning:
“Education is when you read the fine print. Experience is what you get if you don’t.” — Pete Seeger
“Don’t let your learning lead to knowledge, let your learning lead to action.” — Jim Rohn
“The moment you stop learning, you stop leading.” — Rick Warren
“Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at 20 or 80. Anyone who keeps learning stays young.” — Henry Ford
Research from the University of Indiana discovered:
After 30 days, students remember:
10% of what they hear
15% of what they see
20% of what they hear and see
40% of what they discuss
80% of what they do
90% of what they teach to others.
So what are you learning this Friday? Even more what are you teaching others?
