Recently I read an article where a professor wrote a problem on the board and asked a student to come and solve it. As the student begins writing, the teacher begins yelling, “no, no, go back to your seat!” This happened repeatedly four or five times until a young woman walks to the blackboard and begins solving the problem. Once again, the professor begins yelling, “wrong” and the student keeps on, ignoring his outbursts.
Upon finishing, the teacher remarks, “Well done!” At this, the four or five hands of the rejected students shot up, exclaiming, that was exactly what they were doing. He looked over his classroom and said, “This will be one of the most important lessons you will ever learn in your life. It is not enough to know the answer, but you have to know that you know.” He goes on to tell the students just because they are impressed or intimidated by him, they need not listen to his discouragements or doubts when they know the answer.
In Isaiah 43:1, it states, “But now, this is what the Lord says–he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: ‘Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine.” This is something worth knowing that we know that as a Truth!
