Time For Truth

A place to grow in the Grace & Knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ

Wisdom: Skill in the art of godly living

There are those who seek knowledge for the sake of knowledge
That is curiosity.

There are those who seek knowledge to be known by others
That is vanity.

There are those who seek knowledge in order to serve
That is love.

 

            Bernard of Clairvaux

    Great quote
