The Wellspring of All Learning

"Show me how You work, God;

   School me in Your ways."

Psalm 25:4, The Message

"It's what you learn after you know it all that counts"

John Wooden, legendary UCLA basketball coach

A young man often had the occasion to walk by the home of a well-respected professor in his community. He noticed that most of the time as he passed the professor's home, whether early in the morning or late at night, he could see the professor poring over books in his study.

One day he had an opportunity to talk to the professor and he asked him, "Doctor, what keeps you studying? You are at the top in your field -- a professor with many opportunities to speak at major universities. Yet, you never seem to stop learning."

The professor replied, "Son, I would rather have my students drink from a running stream than from a stagnant pool."

The wonderful thing about the Word of God is that no matter how many times a person reads it, there's always something new to learn from it. Take a daily drink from the wellspring of all learning and wisdom -- the Bible. Its truths will make you a champion!
