The student teacher had just given a lecture to beginning math students. The supervising instructor called him aside and said: "That was a marvelous lecture you just gave. It showed the great wisdom you have acquired over your years of training in mathematics. There is just one basic problem. Much of what you said, true and insightful as it was, went right over the heads of your students. You see, you were answering all kinds of important questions that these students aren't even asking yet! You've got to teach them to ask the right questions first."
Are you paying attention? Or are you paying attention to the wrong stuff? A voice that sounds a lot like Wisdom as we met her in Proverbs begs us to learn from past experience, so as not to spend money when we can get free stuff.
