‘The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy is understanding.’ Proverbs 9:10 (KJV)
“True education does not ignore the value of scientific knowledge or literary acquirements; but above information it values power; above power goodness; above intellectual acquirements, character.
'Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom’ (Proverbs 4:7). True education imparts this wisdom. It teaches the best use not only of one but of all our powers and acquirements. Thus it covers the whole circle of obligation—to ourselves, to the world, and to God.” –Ellen G. White, Education, p. 225.
