Knowledge is an outcome of processing and understanding data. We should be students of knowledge. King Solomon of the Old Testament wrote in Proverbs 1:7, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction” (New International Version). “Fear” in this context can be defined as a reverential respect toward something or someone. There is a difference between having knowledge, knowing things, and applying the facts—the wisdom to use the knowledge.
