Dear friends,

Warm greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!!!

 The month of June heralds the arrival of the monsoon and the new academic year. As soon as we hear the name ‘June’, the picture that comes to our minds would be the children joyfully going to school on rainy days sharing one umbrella, no doubt, it is nice to see children playing in the rain as they are going to school and coming back home. Hopefully the new academic year will start on the first week of June itself, and our children are getting ready to go to school. Therefore I would like to share a few thoughts about the difference between Knowledge and wisdom in Biblical perspective, this month. If anyone asks which is important, Wisdom or Knowledge, it would be difficult to answer, because very often we use these two terms interchangeably, but in an in-depth analysis we can understand that there is great difference between these two terms. T.S Eliot wrote “…Where is the wisdom, we have lost in knowledge? Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?” Here the poet is trying to say that humanity is losing something of great value along with our technological advancement.
